Man United boss Louis Van Gaal could have a selection headache for Saturday’s clash with Liverpool after midfielder Michael Carrick picked up an injury.
Carrick has withdrawn from the England squad ahead of the Euro 2016 qualifier against Switzerland on Tuesday night, and that in turn has cast doubt over his availability this weekend.
The 34-year-old was expected to feature at Wembley, but the injury, which has yet to be specified, has ruled him out with England boss Roy Hodgson expected to shed further light on it in his press conference on Monday.
Carrick has 33 caps for England, but has not featured for his country since the 1-1 friendly draw with Italy in Turin in March.
While Jonjo Shelvey could benefit from his absence with another start after starring in the 6-0 win over San Marino on Saturday, it remains to be seen how serious the issue is as Van Gaal could be forced into a reshuffle of his own.
Summer signings Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin are expected to step in as the midfield duo if Carrick is unable to feature.
