Liverpool have a tough task on their hands this week. The Reds need to go to Old Trafford and beat an in form Manchester United side. To make matters worse, Ozan Kabak is reportedly unlikely to face Manchester United. Fans have reacted to the news and they are gutted.
Liverpool take on Manchester United
Ok, let’s try again.
When the Reds made the short trip up to Manchester recently the game was postponed.
Manchester United fans prevented the game going ahead when they stormed the Old Trafford pitch whilst other supporters protested outside the team hotel.
The protest was against the Glazer family’s ownership of the club. The Americans have been unpopular for some time and the Super League debacle reignited tensions.
Liverpool need a win against Manchester United. The Reds can’t afford to drop points at this stage of the season whilst fighting tooth and nail for a top four finish.
Ozan Kabak injured for Manchester United
Last weekend the Reds beat Southampton 2-0 at Anfield.
The Reds did so with Ozan Kabak missing from the side.
The Turkish international picked up a minor fitness issue which kept him out of the game.
Rhys Williams started instead with the 20-year-old not having a bad game at all.
According to The Athletic, it is highly unlikely that Ozan Kabak will face Manchester United.
James Pearce has reported that the boss could well play Fabinho in the back four as a result.
Fans react to Ozan Kabak injury news
It’s safe to say fans are gutted and concerned. Plenty would rather Fabinho was in the midfield instead.
