MUN VS LIV: Fernandes doubtful for Manchester United clash with Liverpool

Manchester United face Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday, and according to The Sun, playmaker Bruno Fernandes may be missing.

Fernandes was a crucial figure in United's 3-2 triumph against Atalanta in midweek, but he was spotted hobbling during a warm-up session on Thursday, according to the report.

The big question is: Is Bruno Fernandes set to miss Manchester United's match against Liverpool due to injury?

Bruno Fernandes has been running the show in the final third ever since his arrival at Old Trafford so if he’s really missing on Sunday then Solskjaer will be under immense pressure.

In midweek, Fernandes was instrumental in United's 3-2 comeback victory after falling down 2-0. He assisted on one goal and set up three more opportunities. He'll be the player Ole looks to on Sunday if he can deliver again again.

This unexpected injury, on the other hand, will derail Solskjaer's plans, and if Bruno Fernandes is indeed unavailable, the manager may be forced to change formation. If the Portuguese are unable to be fit in time, Ole may opt for a 3-2-4-1 formation, with Fred and McTominay forming a double pivot and Pogba occupying a more forward position.

The Sun is the only major outlet claiming such an injury at the time of writing this article, and the truth will only be revealed whenever Solskjaer appears in front of the media.

The manager will surely do all in his power to get Bruno Fernandes into the starting XI, which is why he may refuse to rule him out as early as 48 hours before the game.

Do you think Manchester United can survive without Bruno Fernandes against Liverpool?.
