Speaking ahead of the Derby, Ole revealed alot of his players had been feeling the after effects of a rigorous night against Atalanta.

He said: “Games like Wednesday night are always going to bring knocks and bruises,” Solskjaer said at his pre-match press conference on Friday.

“We do have two or three from that game. Bruno might be one of them that is a doubt, but he’s doing everything he can to be ready.”

Marcus Rashford and Fred also picked up knocks against Atalanta, with Rashford forced off by a dead leg after scoring United’s opening goal in the comeback victory.

“We have some knocks and bruises. But it’s still Friday, the game’s on Sunday, and we will give everyone time. Today [in training], we didn’t have everyone, but let’s see Sunday.

“I hope I can pick from a fully-fit squad. It might be that I’m without two or three.”

Solskjaer said: “A performance needs to consist of 90-plus minutes of attacking and defending, and when you play a team the level of Liverpool you have to be compact and aggressive as a team.

“You have to go out there and give every single drop of nous, knowledge, strong mindset and physical energy.

“It’s going to take everything to get a result against the best teams in the world and Liverpool are one of those. They are one of the teams we are trying to chase because what they have done in the last four years is something we are striving towards.”
