Liverpool have won only once in their last seven outings and next up, they will collide against arch rivals Manchester United after the international break.
The Reds need to step up big time and beat the Red Devils if they are to seriously challenge for the title this season.
As far as the team news is concerned, the Old Trafford club have suffered a major injury set back and that is a great news for Liverpool.
Belgian midfielder Marouane Fellaini limped off injured last night with a knee injury in the WC qualifying game and reports suggest that he could be out for long term (ESPN).
Not to forget, first choice midfielder Paul Pogba is also out due to injury and Mourinho will probably have to select Herrera against Liverpool. The Spanish international was impressive in the last campaign but he has only started once in the PL this season.
Fellaini stepped up big time in the absence of Pogba and scored four goals in four starts for the club. Marouane has been threatening in the attacking third and his absence will be a huge boost for Liverpool, who have been shaky at the back.
Who will come out on top next Saturday?
