Man United rocked by big injury scare ahead of Liverpool, it’s worrying news for ETH

Posted by

When Manchester United plays Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday afternoon, one of their key players could be absent.

What are the most recent Manchester United injury updates?
According to the Daily Mail, who claimed late on Saturday that Raphael Varane will take a fitness test before today’s match, the Red Devils are concerned about the condition of one of their important players.

The French defender, who reportedly complained of calf pain after the Carabao Cup final, will be properly evaluated on Sunday.

As a result, Lisandro Martinez and Harry Maguire, who both started against West Ham United, are now available in case they are required.

Varane has been how effective for Manchester United?
Their prospects of securing all three points would definitely suffer if Varane is unable to play today in Merseyside.

The former Real Madrid player has been a behemoth in the center of the United defense this season, forging one of the league’s best partnerships with Martinez.

Surprisingly, Varane, Martinez, and Casemiro, collectively known as the “Golden Triangle,” have only started together eight times this season.

Yet when it does, Erik ten Hag’s soldiers frequently triumph.

They haven’t lost a game during those games, and they haven’t given up more than once.

In fact, when they have been on the field together, they haven’t given up a goal from an open player either; Jorginho, Robert Lewandowski, and Michael Olise’s free-kick are the only shots that have penetrated their strong defense.

Varane also leads Ten Hag’s team in clearances with 3.9 per game while ranking in the top five for accurate passing (87%).

It suggests the 29-year-old is not only a straightforward, old-school center back but also has the ability to find a teammate and advance the ball from defense, which is a very 21st-century skill.

United will need to play at their best defensively if they are to stop the dangerous combo of Mohamed Salah and Darwin Nunez this afternoon. Liverpool has more than its share of difficulties this season.

The flamboyant duo have scored a combined 32 goals this season, so it might be a difficult day for United without Varane.

With the foregoing in mind, it will undoubtedly be quite troubling news for Ten Hag and his followers to learn that they could lose their important £34 million man.
