The Germany international isn’t named in Louis van Gaal’s match-day squad for their north-west derby encounter at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.
Schweisnteiger did feature in United’s impressive 3-1 victory over Liverpool at Old Trafford earlier in the season following his summer move to the Red Devils.

The World Cup winner missed the draw with Newcastle after suffering a knee injury during the win over Sheffield United.
Schweinsteiger was thought to be unlikely to line up for the Red Devils against their bitter rivals Liverpool at Anfield.
The defensive midfielder has scored one goal in 17 Premier League games so far this season following his £6.7m move to United from Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich in the summer.
