Liverpool face Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday.
However, the Red Devils could potentially be without both Anthony Martial and Nemanja Matic.
Martial was substituted during the second half of Manchester United’s clash against Burnley at Turf Moor last night.

Martial went off injured at the end, replaced by Tuanzebe. Looked like a hamstring issue. Matic also looked to have picked up a knock (left groin).

ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
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.
