Man United star a major doubt for Liverpool clash

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney could well miss today’s clash with perennial foes Liverpool, with The Guardian claiming that the England international has picked up a hamstring knock.

The Red Devils return to Premier League action at Old Trafford today after the international break with a mouth-watering clash with the Merseyside outfit sure to be eagerly anticipated.

Louis van Gaal has a selection dilemma however, as Rooney is a major doubt for the clash and as such the hosts will be robbed of their first-choice number nine.

If the former Everton prodigy is not available, the Dutch maestro may well consider giving new signing Anthony Martial his club debut after a big-money move from Monaco.

Using Marouane Fellaini as the furthest man forward is also an option for the Old Trafford side.

Both teams will hope to get three points today, as they were beaten by West Ham and Swansea respectively in their last fixtures.
