Manchester United dealt blow ahead of Liverpool clash

Manchester United will make a short trip to Liverpool next week Sunday.

Manchester United skipper Bruno Fernandes will miss next week Sunday’s Premier League clash against Liverpool after he was booked for dissent against Bournemouth.

Fernandes received his fifth booking of the season in their disappointing 3-0 home defeat to the Cherries.

The 29-year-old has been ever-present for Erik ten Hag’s side so far this campaign

However, he will now play no part on Merseyside against the current leader leaders.

He has featured in 21 games across all competitions, scored five goals, and provided five assists.

His absence will be a huge loss for Man United, who are already missing several players through injury.

Man United failed to build on their impressive win over Chelsea in midweek as Bournemouth secured their first league win at Old Trafford.

United fell behind to Dominic Solanke’s fifth-minute opener before capitulating in the second half.

The visitors extended their lead through substitute Philip Billing’s header.

Man United’s afternoon got worse when Marcos Senesi nodded in the visitors’ third from a corner.

Ten Hag’s side registered only three shots on target throughout the game.
