Liverpool handed massive boost ahead of Man Utd clash with key player set to return

Liverpool handed massive boost ahead of Man Utd clash with key player set to return

Liverpool will travel to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United on Sunday.

Liverpool have been handed a massive injury boost ahead of their Premier League clash against fierce rivals Manchester United on Sunday.

On Thursday night, Jurgen Klopp’s men regained top spot in the Premier League table after a hard-fought 3-1 win over Sheffield United.

The Reds needed a moment of magic by Alexis Mac Allister to retake the lead before Cody Gakpo sealed all three points in the 90th minute.

For the match against Sheffield, Japanese international Wataru Endo was left out of the squad after it was revealed that he suffered a knock during the match against Brighton and Hove Albion last weekend.

However, ahead of Sunday’s clash against United at Old Trafford, it has been claimed that Endo could return.

As reported by The Athletic, Endo is expected to return to Liverpool’s midfield at the expense of Ryan Gravenberch.

Speaking after the match against Sheffield, Klopp gave a brief update when asked if he expects Endo to be back this weekend.

He said: “That's my information [that he will be fit].

“We rested him today. We had a feeling there could have been a chance for tonight but if we leave him out then there is a big chance for Sunday. I hope that didn't change.”

Klopp added: “Nobody got injured as far as I know today, so recovery started already.

“We recover and go again.”


The likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Diogo Jota, Stefan Bajcetic and Alisson Becker are expected to return to full training next week.

As things stand, Liverpool are two points ahead of Arsenal and three clear of Manchester City.

However, by the time they kick off against United at Old Trafford on Sunday, they could find themselves behind the Gunners and level on points with City again.

Pep Guardiola’s men will start this weekend’s action against Crystal Palace in the early kick-off before Arsenal take on Brighton in the late match.

The 23/24 Premier League title race promises to go down to the wire and could be one of the tightest in the history of the competition.
