Jose Mourinho has seen his options depleted by injury, with Marouane Fellaini joining Paul Pogba on the treatment table during the international break.

Michael Carrick is also missing, but Phil Jones and Romelu Lukaku are fit enough to figure from the off as United seek to stretch their unbeaten start to the season at Anfield.
