Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Alexis Mac Allister won’t be in action on Sunday as Liverpool get ready to welcome Manchester United at Anfield.
The impending clash between the two teams marks a renewal of one of football’s most intense rivalries, with each club contending with its own set of injury challenges.
Meanwhile, at Old Trafford, Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw faced setbacks on Wednesday evening during their Champions League exit against Bayern Munich.
The duo, grappling with issues from that encounter, is anticipated to join a number of their teammates on the injury list for the forthcoming fixture. The club await official confirmation regarding their availability.

Klopp faces a challenge in the upcoming match as Mac Allister remains sidelined with a knee injury sustained against Sheffield United on December 6.
Despite Liverpool’s limited preparation time, attributed to their recent Europa League group-stage fixture in Belgium, the team is already qualified for the last-16. Consequently, they face no pressure to secure a convincing result in the dead-rubber match.
In response to these circumstances, the German manager has made the strategic decision to exclude key players, namely Mohamed Salah, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Alisson Becker, and Virgil van Dijk, from the traveling squad to Brussels.
