Martial is a player that could cause Liverpool a problem or two. In 13 Premier League appearances this season, Martial has been involved in six goals.

With that being the case, it would benefit Liverpool if Martial was unavailable for the clash on the weekend.

As for Matic, he has only made the seven starts in the Premier League this season.

The midfielder is not a regular in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Premier League starting XI.

When Matic has featured in the Premier League this season, he has averaged a WhoScored player rating of 6.69.

The aforementioned figure highlights that Matic would be less of a loss in comparison to Martial.
