Screams of Halloween horror may well be ringing around Old Trafford by half-six this evening, as Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s ailing, rag-tag outfit play host to a rampant Liverpool in the Premier League. The visitors sit top of the table, and are yet to drop a single point after eight games. They’ll be expecting to make it nine-in-a-row today.
United’s injury list is catastrophically long. Eric Bailly, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Phil Jones, Diogo Dalot, Paul Pogba and David de Gea are all definitely out; they could be joined by Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Daniel James, Anthony Martial, Luke Shaw and Jesse Lingard.
Liverpool will certainly be without the injured Nathaniel Clyne and Xherdan Shaqiri, and the suspended Harvey Elliott. Alisson, Joel Matip and Mo Salah are all doubtful.
