Manchester United Receive Huge Injury Boost Ahead Of Liverpool Game

EPL clubs Arsenal, Brighton & Hove Albion, Chelsea, Everton, Liverpool FC, Manchester City and Watford have confirmed attendance at Premier League Live Bengaluru.

The midfielder repaid his manager's faith with two of United's most outstanding individual performances of last season - one in the 2-0 win over champions Chelsea at Old Trafford and another in the Europa League final against Ajax.

Ander Herrera has endured a frustrating start to the season, but you would not know it listening to him talk.

United's season got off to the best possible start with four wins in their opening five games in the league, scoring 16 goals in the process, conceding only two goals - both coming in the 2-2 draw with Stoke City.

Marouane Fellaini has also emerged as a key player under Mourinho, who describes the Belgian as "very important" to his United plans.

"Romelu Lukaku underwent an MRI scan but no fracture or structural damage has been diagnosed".

Both Manchester teams are joint top with a five-point gap over third-placed Tottenham, with Manchester City ahead of Manchester United on goal difference.

It is a question that will have presented itself more vividly to Mourinho as the full-time whistle blew at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening, signalling the end to a very entertaining game from which Pep Guardiola's Man City emerged victorious.

"We have to wait for them", Mourinho concluded. Liverpool went into the worldwide break seven points behind United after a 1-1 draw at Newcastle. The 24-year-old was used primarily from the bench last season and when Burnley were leading as they looked to defend and see out wins.

But regardless of their current defensive issues, their attack is scary.

"We won the league a few times since then, but it's great fun to watch this team".

But they haven't played anyone!

Profligacy in front of goal and just two clean sheets have meant Liverpool are sitting in seventh with 12 points, already seven points adrift of the Manchester clubs and if the Reds lose at Anfield against United on October 14, Aldridge thinks the game may well be up.

"I don't think they've taken a big enough one for me but I do think they've moved in the right direction".

Last season, Mourinho's preferred tactic when playing away against the top teams was to sit back, soak up pressure and try to push for the draw.
