Man Utd could be without three key stars vs Liverpool

Manchester United could be without three key players when they host arch-rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The Red Devils suffered a huge setback in their Champions League pursuit last night following a dramatic loss against Chelsea.

They were leading 3-2 heading into the final minutes of stoppage time before Diogo Dalot conceded a needless penalty.

Just a minute later, the Blues went on to secure an unlikely victory. Cole Palmer scored the winner from a huge deflection.

United manager Erik ten Hag will want a strong response after the setback, but he could be without three players this weekend.

Raphael Varane was spotted limping for most of the opening half and there were no surprises that he was replaced at the break.

Jonny Evans, who replaced him after the interval, also had a game to forget. He managed only 21 minutes before being taken off.

Aside from the duo, United reveal that there are doubts over the fitness of Casemiro, who was substituted in the second half.

United need huge response against Liverpool

The Red Devils had the chance to reduce the gap to fourth-placed Aston Villa to eight points with one game in hand.

A late and unexpected setback has hampered their pursuit of Champions League football.

There are still eight more games to play and United will need a perfect record to keep their top-four hopes alive.

Hence, Sunday’s game against Jurgen Klopp’s side is a must-win. Ten Hag will be eyeing a huge response from his side.

They beat their arch-rivals by a 4-3 scoreline in the FA Cup quarter-final and the fans will be anticipating a similar display.

United must start quickly off the blocks at the weekend and an early breakthrough would ease the nerves at Old Trafford.
