There has been some early team news coming in from Manchester before Liverpool’s visit to Old Trafford. According to M.E.N, Ander Herrera and Daley Blind will not be part of United’s squad in their crucial Europa League clash tonight.
At present, no apparent explanation has been given as to why the duo will miss the game tonight, but their absence has been confirmed by M.E.N on their twitter account.
On a good note though, Antonio Valencia, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and RaShaun Williams have been included in the 18-men squad to take on Liverpool later tonight in the Europa League round of 16 second leg tie.

Manchester United’s squad vs. Liverpool – De Gea, Romero, Valencia, Darmian, Varela, Smalling, Williams, Borthwick-Jackson, Rojo, Schneiderlin, Schweinsteiger, Fellaini, Carrick, Lingard, Mata, Memphis, Martial, Rashford
Seeing United’s squad, it does seem like Marouane Fellaini is set to start another key game for United. Bastian Schweinsteiger is still not 100% fit to start a game, but the German International can be expected to come late in the game to change the course, if the tie will still be alive until his inclusion.
Louis Van Gaal has a lot of questions to answer, and get his United future sorted. United play two massive game inside 4 days, and if the Dutchman manages to get positive results in both the games, Jose Mourinho’s bandwagon will be put on hold for a little while.
As for Jurgen Klopp, he must look to attack and pressure United like he did at Anfield, and forget about the first leg lead. His side may be 2-0 up, but he cannot allow United to enjoy possession and a route back in the tie.
