Manchester United hoping for Martial and Lingard returns for Liverpool game
Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial could return for Manchester United against Liverpool.
The Mirror report the duo are both poised for quick comebacks.
United are hopeful that one or both will be available to take on Liverpool at Old Trafford.
Neither have travelled with the squad for tonight’s FA Cup clash away at Chelsea.
Lingard and Martial both suffered injuries in last week’s Champions League game with PSG, a contributing factor to the 2-0 defeat.
It was suggested last week that both players could miss next weekend’s game with Liverpool.
The game against Liverpool is a must win, to both keep United’s league momentum up, and dent the Reds’ title challenge.
Liverpool fans will be insufferable if they finally win the title, and Sunday’s game at Old Trafford is United’s best chance to prevent it.
Having both Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard available will be a big boost to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Lingard is a big game player, while Liverpool fans will still have nightmares about Martial’s incredible debut against them.
A victory over Chelsea tonight will also be significant heading into the Liverpool game, ensuring there is no hangover from the PSG loss.
