Manchester United face something of a selection headache ahead of their pivotal Premier League clash with Liverpool next weekend after news of Marouane Fellaini joining Paul Pogba on the injury list.
According to BBC Sport, Fellaini is set to miss out next weekend’s game against the Reds after sustaining a knee injury while on international duty.
United will be forced to field something of a makeshift midfield without the in-form Belgian, though Jose Mourinho will be able to rely on significant squad depth.
Herrera has not been a regular so far this season, but the Spaniard impressed for United last season and will be hoping to prove himself if fielded on Saturday.
Herrera’s chances of playing in the next few weeks may also be boosted by reports from The Sun that suggest Pogba is likely to be out with a hamstring problem until early December.
