After just eight Premier League fixtures, Liverpool are eight points clear at the top of the table and next up, they will collide against arch rivals Manchester United.
The Red Devils are already 15 points behind the European Champions and Solskjaer’s men might end up in the relegation zone if they lose on Sunday at Old Trafford.
Ahead of the contest vs Manchester United, Liverpool have received a huge double boost that will certainly put a smile on the supporters’ faces.
According to The Guardian, Alisson Becker is ready to return for the Reds for the fixture against Man Utd. The Brazilian international suffered a calf injury in the opening PL game of the season vs Norwich and since then, he has been out of action.
The former Roma star had a fantastic season last term. He helped us win the Champions League and was also impressive for the Selecao in their Copa America winning campaign.
In his place, summer signing Adrian has done pretty well for the club but if Alisson – the reigning UEFA/FIFA Goalkeeper of the Year – is 100% fit, then he should get the nod to start at the weekend.
On the other hand, reports (The Guardian) suggest that star playmaker Mohamed Salah is expected to be fit to face Manchester United.
The Egyptian international was on the receiving end of a horror tackle in the last league game vs Leicester City, sustained an ankle injury and therefore, he did not go on international duty.
