London: Bastian Schweinsteiger is a major doubt for Manchester United’s English Premier League trip to Liverpool on Sunday.
The German missed Tuesday night’s draw at Newcastle with a knee injury and despite making good progress is expected to remain on the sidelines.
Phil Jones could return from his ankle problem but Antonio Valencia (foot), Luke Shaw (leg), Marcos Rojo (shoulder) and Michael Carrick (knee) are all definitely still out.
Despite starkly contrasting playing philosophies, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and his Manchester United counterpart Louis van Gaal are grappling with similar problems ahead of their meeting at Anfield today.
While Klopp espouses hard-running, high-pressing, "heavy metal" football, Van Gaal is all about patient ball retention, but both men are yet to find a consistent formula for scoring goals.
