Manchester United hopeful Phil Jones will be fit for Liverpool

Paul Pogba

United's medical staff will assess Jones this week, but there is hope the 25-year-old, who has been in fine form for club and country this season, will be fit enough to line up against Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday lunchtime.

"It's not just a Liverpool problem", he added. Who shows highlights of defending? If a defender misses three tackles he's off so it's no wonder they are cautious. 7 goals in 7 games takes some doing and the Belgian appears to be the flawless fit to United's style, working well with Rashford and net 22 times already.

Liverpool trail second-placed United by seven points already in the Premier League ahead of the October 14 showdown - but this will be Jose Mourinho's side's first test against a top-six team this season. In contrast, they've conceded just two goals so far - both of which came in their away draw to Stoke City in September.

Collymore says the defensive frailty that could cost them against Jose Mourinho's men is nothing new though.

"In another championship, this would mean nearly the title, but in England it means nothing".

Liverpool have won only once in their last seven outings and next up, they will collide against arch rivals Manchester United after the global break.

"Last year it started harder and it turned out really well".

Chelsea, meanwhile, are aiming to get back to winning ways in the Premier League after the disappointment of their 1-0 loss to Manchester City at Stamford Bridge before the worldwide break.

Fellaini stepped up big time in the absence of Pogba and scored four goals in four starts for the club.
