Manchester United vs Liverpool - Fellaini back for Liverpool clash

Marouane Fellaini is back in contention for Manchester United’s derby clash with Liverpool on Saturday lunchtime.

The Belgium international has been sidelined since January 31 with a knee complaint, but manager Jose Mourinho confirmed the imposing midfielder was back in contention this weekend.

Veteran striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is training and centre-back Eric Bailly is fully fit, but Ander Herrera, Marcos Rojo, Anthony Martial, Phil Jones and Daley Blind remain absent for the Old Trafford encounter.

Jordan Henderson, Andrew Robertson and Georginio Wijnaldum are all available for Liverpool.

Henderson has trained after suffering a dead leg against Porto in the Champions League on Tuesday, as have Robertson (knock) and Wijnaldum (illness), both of whom missed that European game.

Nathaniel Clyne (back) is still lacking match fitness and will not be considered yet as manager Jurgen Klopp is happy with his options at right-back.
