Ander Herrera must return to the Manchester United starting line-up for Saturday’s crunch clash against Liverpool FC, according to Nigel Winterburn.

Manchester United are expected to be without Marouane Fellaini for a number of weeks after the midfielder suffered a knee injury while on international duty with Belgium.

It remains to be seen exactly how long Fellaini will be out of action for but he is widely expected to miss Saturday’s crunch clash against Liverpool at Anfield.

Herrera could be the man to fill in for the Belgian midfielder when the Red Devils take on Jurgen Klopp’s side at Anfield on on Saturday.

And former Arsenal legend Winterburn is tipping Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho to play Herrera against the Reds on Saturday lunchtime.

Speaking to Sky Sports News on Wednesday morning, Winterburn said: “I think he will go with Herrera.

“I just think there’s a bit more energy in that midfield area. Particularly with the way they try to break.”

Manchester United head into Saturday’s clash in fine form, having won six of their opening seven games to leave them level on points with Manchester City at the top of the table.

Herrera has been limited to just one Premier League start and four substitute appearances in the top flight so far this season and he will be hoping for a chance to impress against Liverpool this weekend.
