Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed today that they will be without Raphael Varane who returned from International games injured. But Harry Maguire and Amad Diallo trained with the squad this week which makes them be in contention for the game.
The gaffer further provided some encouraging news on the fitness of Wesley Fofana and James Justin as he ruled out Wilfred Ndidi from the match. Rodgers said Kelechi Iheanacho is 100 percent fit for this game.

2. Jannick Vestergaard
If available tomorrow, the Danish defender will be the second person that Rodger will task with the duty of not giving Ronaldo any space to shoot tomorrow.
Unlike Soyuncu, Vestergaard is good both in the ground and aerial duels which are what makes him so good.
Nevertheless, Rodgers will hope that he starts tomorrow because they need a quality player like him to win the game, and if he's unavailable, Johnny Evans will start instead.
