Anthony Martial is also thought to be in contention for a place in the squad.

Pogba has missed five of United’s last seven games as he continues to deal with an ankle problem and it is hoped the international break would have helped his recovery.

Wan-Bissaka has been suffering with tonsillitis and missed their last three games but he is expected to be ready for Liverpool.

Shaw and Martial have not played for the club since their 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace on August 24 but may return.

It is a welcome boost for Solskjaer as his side is in desperate need of a result following their worst start to a league season in 30 years.

They are already 15 points behind Liverpool in first place and have suffered embarrassing defeats to Newcastle, West Ham and Palace.

Liverpool have their own positive injury news, though, with goalkeeper Alisson Becker and forward Mohamed Salah set to start.

Alisson has been sidelined since the opening day with a calf injury while Salah suffered an ankle injury in the Reds’ 2-1 win over Leicester before the international break.
