Liverpool are on a high after a 2-0 victory against Wolves at Anfield last night. But The Reds face one of their toughest challenges yet this season on Sunday when Manchester United travel to Merseyside.

Erik Ten Haag’s side are fresh off domestic cup glory after defeating Newcastle in the Carabao Cup Final on Sunday, as well as defeating West Ham 3-1 in the FA Cup last night. Marcus Rashford has been absolutely electrifying this season, guiding his team to third place, with some even putting United forward as dark horse title challengers.

Bolstered by the return of Ibrahima Konate to the squad, Liverpool are in much healthier shape in regards to their squad.

However, there are still a few players on the injured list.

Calvin Ramsay is sidelined until at least the beginning of next season after the young full back under went surgery.

Joe Gomez missed the Crystal Palace game at the weekend and was still unfit for last night’s game with an apparent muscle injury. At present, it is unknown how long Gomez will be sidelined for.

Naby Keita was hooked at half-time during the Crystal Palace game and missed the Wolves game through injury. The midfielder is unlikely to feature even if he gets fit in time.

Thiago Alcantara is still sidelined with a hip issue with no timeframe set yet on when the Spaniard will return to action.

Luis Diaz is close to returning to the squad after a long injury lay-off since October but the United game will come too soon for the Colombian.
