It is not looking too rosy for Ole as he is doubtful of three key players who might not be fit to face their bitter rivals on Sunday. In the past few weeks United struggle has put Solskjaer in Jeopardy while trying to get the club back to its winning state.
Bruno Fernandes is a doubt for the Premier League clash between Manchester United and Liverpool on Sunday, the midfielder has not missed a game due to injury since he arrived the club last year, however, there is a possibility that he will be absent on Sunday because of a knock he suffered during the Champions League game against Atalanta.
Also, Anthony Martial and Fred has presented fitness update. Ole may just have to pick his best eleven in absence of his best attacking midfielder – Fernandes.
Bruno has scored 4 goals and 2 assists in 8 Premier League games this season 2021-22, he is certainly a strong figure in the United squad.
“I’m not going to rule anyone out from Sunday but I’m not sure if everyone’s going to be fit. We have two or three with knocks but I hope I can pick from a fit squad,” said Solskjaer (via the club’s official website).
“Anthony is still working on his fitness, hopefully he’s come through today and let’s see how he is tomorrow.
“Bruno might be a doubt but he’s doing everything he can to be fit.
“I can’t say if Fred will be fit or not.”
Recall that Ole’s job at Old Trafford is at stake and the game against Liverpool on Sunday is crucial, fans and supporters of the club are beginning to get impatient with the results they are getting from Solskjaer and many of them are agitating for his removal from the current job, however, the decision is left for the club management to decide.
So far, Zidane and Antonio Conte are like the top options for Ole’s replacement.
