Ole expects full-strength squad against Liverpool


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hopeful Manchester United's defensive injury crisis will ease before crunch tie with Liverpool

Manchester United are currently sweating over the fitness of defensive players , Luke Shaw, Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof.

Lindelof and Shaw were both absent in the Red  Devils' 1-0 win against Watford on Saturday in the FA Cup, where Eric Bailly was forced off with a neck injury before half-time.

All three players are doubts for United's trip to Burnley on Tuesday where they will be looking to go top of the Premier League.

But Solskjaer is confident his back line will be closer to full strength for the fixture at Anfield on Sunday.

"I hope [they will be back] for Liverpool, definitely," said Solskjaer. "Not sure if they'll make the Burnley one. We'll see on Monday."

On beating Liverpool to the title this season Solskjaer added: "We're not even halfway through the season, no one will remember how the league table looked like on Jan. 12, 2021.

"I think it's great that our fans are excited and they're happy with where we are at and that we have this little sense of excitement, but then we're not even halfway through [the season].

"For me, all my eyes are on Tuesday and then let's see where we're at after that one."
