Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho looks set to be without nine first team players when his side travel to Merseyside to face rivals Liverpool in Sunday’s derby.
Mourinho’s growing injury list has increased at the wrong time with his side in dire need of a positive result at Anfield. They currently occupy sixth position in the division, eight points off the top four.
The Portuguese looks forced to play a centre half pairing of Eric Bailly and Phil Jones, who scored a comical own goal in United’s defeat to Valencia, as Marcos Rojo
“Apart from that nobody, nobody. And last week, we had three matches, the majority of the players are the players that are playing all the time and I had no other options, includes a player like Marcos Rojo that I expect to play today and give a rest to Ashley Young as an example but at half-time he is injured and he is out.
“The players that I play, if this was a match to decide the group would be a very similar team, so that’s the reality. When you analyse Manchester United and analyse our ambitions and our level sometimes you should learn the situation a little bit better because you make certain kind of comments.”
