Manchester United: Many fans fearing the worst at the weekend after injury blows

Manchester United will be without the services of David de Gea for Sunday’s Premier League clash at home to Liverpool, with Sky Sports confirming that the Spaniard has been ruled out through injury.

United Xtra on Twitter (@utdxtra) shared the injury news to its followers, with Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard also set to miss the weekend’s clash, as per Sky Sports.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team go into the match a full 15 points and 11 places behind Liverpool in the Premier League table, with United winning just one of their last seven league matches while the Merseysiders have a 100% record in the division so far this term.

De Gea’s absence in particular may come as a significant blow, with the goalkeeper boasting a good record against Liverpool – having faced them 19 times as a United player, he has kept six clean sheets in those games, including four in his last seven league matches against Jurgen Klopp’s men.
