Former Liverpool Player Urges Juventus to Sign Emre Can from LFC

Captaining Liverpool since Steven Gerrard's departure in 2015, Henderson has been a mainstay in the centre of midfield, both before and since the arrival of Jurgen Klopp to Anfield, deploying him as the holding midfielder in front of the back-four.

Manchester United needs to win this match somehow if they want to win the league title.

The Reds have won just three of their opening seven Premier League games, while Manchester United have only dropped points once this season to leave them second in the table.

Klopp's side have struggled defensively since the start of the campaign, but Purslow expects the former Borussia Dortmund boss to be given plenty of time to improve results before the club's hierarchy begins to consider a change in management.

Manchester United versus Liverpool is one of the biggest rivalries in football.

But Gomez believes that the 50-year-old works hard to build an "emotional connection" with each of his players.

Jones missed United's Champions League clash with CSKA Moscow last month due to an ankle injury but returned to play the full 90 minutes during the 4-0 win over Crystal Palace before the worldwide break.

Fellaini suffered a knee ligament injury during Belgium's 4-3 win over Bosnia on Saturday and has returned to Carrington to undergo further assessment while Pogba is still some weeks away from returning from a hamstring strain. Jose Mourinho did bolster his midfield options in the summer by signing Nemanja Matic.

"They have had the upper hand against all of the top teams because of the nature of the way those games are played".

What impact will these injuries have on United's upcoming games?

They are second only on goal difference and have scored 21 times and conceded just two and only dropped points once in a 2-2 draw at Stoke City.

Louis van Gaal's side were better in the previous season and briefly touched the top of the league after a game at Watford, but defeats at Leicester and Manchester City hurt in his first term.
