Old Trafford

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho will be hoping all of his international stars return to the Aon Training Complex unscathed ahead of Monday’s return to Premier League action at Liverpool.

The Reds 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 the fixture list has thrown up three games in six days for Mourinho’s men.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan missed Armenia’s matches against Romania and Poland to continue his fight to regain full fitness, while Luke Shaw was not rushed back by England, with interim coach Gareth Southgate stressing last week that the left-back “isn’t quite back fit yet”.

Phil Jones looks set to remain on the sidelines but Marouane Fellaini should be available for Anfield as he only sat out Belgium’s victory over Gibraltar due to suspension.

The hosts are anxious over the availability of Adam Lallana (groin) and Georginio Wijnaldum (hamstring) but Emre Can is likely to be an option after recovering from the ankle injury he sustained against Burton Albion in the EFL Cup. Dejan Lovren and Nathaniel Clyne also need to prove their fitness to boss Jurgen Klopp.

Anthony Taylor will be the referee in Monday night’s blockbuster encounter.
