There have been no reports of fresh injuries to any of the 14 Old Trafford men who spent the international break with their respective national squads.

Wayne Rooney, Chris Smalling, Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford all came through England’s 0-0 draw with Slovenia in Ljubljana unscathed.

The Reds Devils have more time to prepare for the Anfield clash, which should help Sergio Romero, Marcos Rojo and Antonio Valencia recover from their World Cup qualifying exploits in South America.

But Mourinho’s men will now face three games in six days and the boss is likely to utilise the full extent of his squad.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan looks set to be available, having missed Armenia’s matches against Romania and Poland to continue his fight to regain full fitness.

Luke Shaw was granted a few days off by the club after a spell out with a groin issue and fever while Marouane Fellaini should be available for Anfield as he only sat out Belgium’s victory over Gibraltar through suspension.
