Manchester United have been dealt a huge injury blow ahead of their crucial Premier League meeting with arch rivals Liverpool this weekend.

Liverpool and Manchester United are the two most successful clubs in English football and their rivalry dates back decades ago.

Both teams at Old Trafford on Sunday evening with hosts Manchester United looking to get back on track in the league.

They will have to navigate the Liverpool game without key player David De Gea who picked up an injury earlier this week.

Manchester United goalkeeper De Gea will miss the league game with a groin injury sustained while he was on international duty with the Spanish senior team squad.

He suffered the injury during the Euro 2020 qualifier between hosts Sweden and Spain.

Without David De Gea, Spain were able to book their place at Euro 2020 with the help of a late goal from Valencia striker Rodrigo Moreno.

Sweden had earlier taken the lead through striker Marcus Berg and they were well on their way to an important win before it was cut short by the last gasp leveler from the aforementioned Rodrigo.

In the absence of David De Gea, Argentine international Sergio Romero will start the Liverpool game in goal.
