After Ole Gunnar Solskjaer expressed worries about Bruno Fernandes’ fitness, the midfielder has been named in Manchester United’s team to face Liverpool.

The Portuguese is a doubt for the game, according to the United manager, who also mentioned Marcus Rashford as a concern after the midweek Champions League triumph over Atalanta.

Solskjaer said: “Games like Wednesday night are always going to bring knocks and bruises and we do have two or three carrying knocks from that game. I’ll give everyone time, I hope I can pick from a fully fit squad, I might be without two or three.

“Bruno [Fernandes] might be a doubt, but he’s doing everything he can to be ready.”

United, on the other hand, appears to have received a double injury boost, as both Fernandes and Rashford were seen arriving at The Lowry Hotel before Sunday’s encounter at Old Trafford.

De Gea, Henderson, Heaton, Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Shaw, Matic, McTominay, Van de Beek, Pogba, Fernandes, Sancho, Lingard, Greenwood, Cavani, Ronaldo are among the Manchester United players spotted at the team hotel.
