United have as many as nine injury concerns before the high profile encounter with the likes of Anthony Martial and Luke Shaw set to miss the trip to Merseyside.
Liverpool are yet to taste defeat in the Premier League and after securing qualification to the Champions League by beating Napoli in midweek, the Reds will be beaming with confidence.
On the other hand, Man United lost their final group game in the Champions League 2-1 to Valencia but this game did not hold much importance since they had already qualified for the next round.
But what that loss has done is dent the confidence of the United players before the game.
And now it seems, Jose Mourinho and his players will have another reason to work harder after Sky Sports have confirmed that United legend Roy Keane will be a pundit for Sunday’s game.
Yes, Roy Keane will be present for the Sky Sports broadcast at Anfield.
And the introduction of Roy Keane at Sky Sports is not good news for Manchester United especially if they perform poorly.
Keane will be alongside the likes of Graeme Souness and Jamie Carragher inside the studio while his former Man United partner Gary Neville will be the co-commentator in the game.
And if Roy Keane’s analysis at ITV is anything to go by then the Sky Sports fans are in for a treat.
But one that has been made clear that this appearance at Sky Sports is one a one-off request and Roy Keane will not be appearing regularly.
