United, meanwhile, have struggled to keep up with their neighboring competitors Manchester City in the Premier League this season and are already 15 points adrift of the top flight leaders.

Given the attacking flair of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, there'll be plenty of Liverpool fans claiming Coutinho won't be missed, but the departure of the Reds' star player is sure to make an impact on the side.

Moreno was Liverpool's first choice LB before getting injured.

The Spaniard told Sky Sports: "We are having a good season, but obviously in the Premier League Man City are having a super season".

Although Coutinho will no longer be able to provide the trio with ammunition, they still have the speed and guile to trouble Pep Guardiola's side at the back.

Australia captain Steve Smith , left, and England counterpart Eoin Morgan will play in a series of five one-day internationals. They have been brilliant in the 50-over games in the recent past and a win here would be so good for them.

But after their win over Manchester United, and even the fixture we had ourselves against Wolves from the same division, was it any surprise. He came on Guardiola's radar when Shakthar inflicted the Citizens their only defeat this season in a Champions League group stages clash in early December. Manchester United host Stoke on Monday and will look to capitalise on any slip-up at Anfield, while Arsenal travel to Bournemouth.

Manchester City is a team that punishes any kind of mistake in your own half of the pitch and with Moreno returning from a semi-lengthy injury spell, it might not be wise to thrust him into the limelight just yet.

Coach Eddie Niedzwiecki is in temporary charge of the team for the trip to Old Trafford.
