Manchester United vs Liverpool: José Mourinho said he plans to travel to Liverpool to attack the injured Manchester United team on Sunday and live on Sky Sports. United have nine players who either doubt or exclude their desire to close the gap by 16 points among competitors.
“I will try (win),” he said. “We know that we will fight with the leader against high-level teams. But we have our own qualities, we have the potential, even the problems we face, and the choice of team, tactical problems, methods, philosophy. ”
“We have doubts about everything, because we do not know who can use it, but we will come on Sunday, and we have players, we will have a team that can go there to fight for the victory.”
Manchester United won only one of the last four games in all competitions and beat Valencia 2: 1 in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.
The Liverpool team defeated Naples in the middle of the week to make progress in the last 16 games of the Champions League and remain undefeated in the Premier League this season.
They started at the weekend, because the leader and manager of the Premier League Jürgen Klopp said: “I know that this will be a very tense game, and we will be ready for it.
“We achieved a big goal in the Champions League this week, and we can feel the relief of this one day. Since yesterday (Thursday) we are back on the road. I am really looking forward to it. More. “
Liverpool will be forced to conduct a defensive reorganization, and Trent Alexander – Arnold, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez – all injured.
James Milner can replace Alexander Arnold on the right, and Nathaniel Klein can return to a team that has not participated since September.
Due to all the injuries of Manchester United, Mourinho is having a hard time choosing his team to meet with Liverpool.
Nine players in the first line may miss the game due to injury, Mourinho cannot confirm who can participate in the game, but he admits that he is “promising” for some players.
“They all did not train yesterday. Today they will practice a little. I do not want to talk tests, but I will introduce the training, look at the answers, adapt and see if we can add a little Friday tomorrow, ”said Mourinho. “But, I hope it is better not to say for sure, I hope that some are available, but certainly not. “
Alexis Sanchez and Victor Lindelof were absent due to prolonged injuries. Then doubts arose regarding Chris Smalling, Luke Shaw, Diogo Dalot, Anthony Martial, Scott MacTominai, Matteo Darmian and Marcos Rojo.
If there is a suitable player, then the focus should be placed in front of the “light” player, as Mourinho recently said. Mata influenced the game as a starter and replacement in the last two games of Manchester United and had a good understanding with Jesse Lingard on the right. When Manchester United didn’t have a ball against Andy Robertson, who was adventurous, they might have had to switch.
Bailey agrees with Jones, because you cannot support a player who helps the opponent score and score a goal. If Jones starts and is good at it, he will close a lot of people. If they are healthy enough, then Smalling and Shaw must be confident, as well as Combat.
In a losing game against Valencia on Wednesday, Marcos Rojo hit the backs, and it looks like he will miss Victor Lindlow and Alexis Sanchez. Chris Smalling, Diogo Dalot, Anthony Martial, Matteo Darmian, Luke Shaw and Scott McTinay doubt this.
