Both Liverpool and Manchester United have had injury-plagued season albeit the impact on both teams has been night and day in contrast.

Liverpool are fresh from winning the Carabao Cup, are into the last 16 of the Europa League, are currently second in the league only on goal difference.

Manchester United by contrast are languishing in sixth place and did not even make it out of their group in the Champions League.

Perhaps the only silver lining in this otherwise very unfair comparison is last week’s wild F.A Cup tie that saw United knock out their bitter rivals and will be heading to Wembley for a semi-final date against Coventry City.

The North West rivals will be meeting again in two weeks at Old Trafford on April 7th for a classic Premier League clash.

Liverpool’s injury situation is looking up as their superstar right back Trent Alexander-Arnold could be back for the clash.

He has been sidelined since sustaining a knee ligament injury during the match against Burnley in mid-February. This injury is a recurrence of the same issue that caused him to miss three games in January.

Since the beginning of the year, the 25-year-old has only managed to complete a full 90 minutes twice.

As The Telegraph reports, Trent has taken another step forward in recovery, and they target a return just in time for that North West derby.

“Alexander-Arnold is increasing his workload at the club’s AXA training centre during the international break.” they reported.

This will be a major boost for the Merseyside club as they continue nursing so many injuries.

Joel Matip, Ben Doak, and Thiago Alcântara are all still on the sidelines with long-term injuries.

Versatile forward Diogo Jota who was feared could miss the rest of the season could be back after the international break – same case for midfielder Curtis Jones.
