A highly anticipated derby between Manchester United and Liverpool, scheduled for Sunday at 5.30pm in Old Trafford. One of the most felt challenges in the United Kingdom: the two most successful teams face off. A match that will face Reds and Red Devils, but that in all probability will not see the most awaited duel, the one between David De Gea and Alisson Becker. The two goalkeepers were in fact ready for their derby, but the injury occurred in the national team will almost certainly keep De Gea out. The Spaniard in fact left the field in the second half of Sweden-Spain, and we will hardly see him on the field on Sunday.

An injury in the most delicate week for United, on the eve of an important challenge like the one against rivals of all time, which adds to the many injuries that have occurred in the last period. Technician Solskjaer in fact has a Pogba in mid-service, struggling since the beginning of the season with an ankle injury, and the injury of De Gea adds to those of Martial, Wan-Bissaka and Shaw. The 3 could, however, be part of Sunday's challenge, giving the Norwegian coach a little breathing space. On the other hand, there is a team that travels to 1000, firmly at the helm of the Premier with 24 points, to +8 over Manchester City. A team that has one of its strengths in Alisson, repeatedly author of spectacular and decisive rescues.

A derby that probably will not be on the field, even if that of United could be pure pretactic, but that has long been played off the field. A derby, if we want, also in the field of injuries. Alisson, in fact, also suffered an injury, right in the first round of Premier, but returned shortly thereafter. For now, therefore, a remote derby, waiting for the one on the field, which if there is no Sunday will only be postponed to the next challenge. The England derby awaits the clash between the two top ..
