'Fernandes may miss Liverpool match' confirmed Solskjaer

Fri 22 October 2021 | 13:54

The absence of the Portuguese star will have a big impact on the performance of the Red Devils midfield.

Manchester United

boss

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

has claimed that

Bruno Fernandes

is likely to miss Saturday's game against Liverpool.

The 27-year-old star, who performed well against Atalanta and played a key role in his side's victory, suffered an injury late in the game. The severity of his injury has not yet been announced, but Solskjaer is not sure if the Portuguese star can play in a crucial match against

Liverpool

at Old Trafford.

Solskjaer told reporters:

"It's still just Friday, the game's on Sunday, we'll give everyone time. We might have the whole squad back fit, we might be two or three players down. Today we didn't have everyone [in training]. Let's see Sunday.

"Games like Wednesday night are always going bring knocks and bruises and, yeah, we do have two or three carrying knocks from that game. I'll give everyone time and hope I can pick from a fully fit squad, I might be without two or three. Yes, Bruno might be a doubt. But he's doing everything he can to be ready."

With 4 goals and 2 assists in 8 Premier League games, Fernandez has been the most effective player of his team so far this season. However, the Red Devils have only gained 1 point in their last 3 league games and are not experiencing good conditions. They are sixth in the table, five points behind leaders
