Manchester United could welcome back Paul Pogba, Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka for their clash with Liverpool at Old Trafford

Manchester United are set for a triple boost with the return of three key players for Sunday’s huge showdown with arch rivals Liverpool.

Paul Pogba, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw are all set to return for the Old Trafford clash, with forward Anthony Martial also understood to be in contention to make the18-man squad.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is desperate for the return of a core of his established players, with the Reds having endured their worst start to a league campaign for 30 years.

Solskjaer’s side are down in 12th place, 15 points behind leaders Liverpool, who boast a 100 per cent record and who can pile the pressure on the beleaguered United boss by continuing their winning run at the weekend.

Shaw and Martial have not featured since United’s 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace back on August 24, while Pogba has missed five of their last seven games with an ongoing ankle problem, but he spent part of the international break recuperating at a warm weather training camp in Dubai.

Solskjaer is under increasing pressure, despite United’s public insistence that he retains the full support of the board and is no immediate danger of him losing his job.

After Liverpool, United have four successive away games, with Solskjaer’s side having not won on the road since the 3-1 Champions League win away to Paris St Germain on March 6, which effectively secured him the job on a permanent basis.
