Manchester United, meanwhile, heads to Merseyside off the back of what has been another dismal week at Old Trafford. Having already exited Europe completely,
the Red Devils look set to travel to Anfield with a lengthy injury list, while also having captain Bruno Fernandes out suspended.
If reports are to be believed though, Erik ten Hag is safe — for now.

Manchester United won’t sack Erik ten Hag before deal confirmed
Erik ten Hag is currently not at risk of being sacked by Manchester United, according to The Independent.
The report claims the club does not want to make any big decisions until Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s 25 per cent purchase is completed.
Questions over Ten Hag’s future have grown this week following a dismal 3-0 defeat at home to Bournemouth, followed by
Manchester United’s exit from Europe after a meek 1-0 loss to Bayern Munich. The gap to Liverpool could grow to 13 points if the Reds win at Anfield on Sunday
Liverpool.com says: Remember when Ratcliffe’s purchase was set to be completed during the last international break? We’re nearly into 2024, and it still hasn’t been confirmed.
It’s just one of the many issues currently at Old Trafford, and there does seem to be a sense of when,
not if, Ten Hag is sacked. Liverpool might be able to speed the process up this weekend… or it might drag on some more.
Napoli has held positive talks with Victor Osimhen’s camp about extending his current deal, according to Sky Sports Italy. The new contract would run until 2026, and include a release clause of around $146m (£115m/€133m).
Osimhen has been linked with a move away from Napoli for some time, following what looked to be a breakdown in his relationship
with the club during the summer. His current contract runs out in 2025, with Liverpool among the clubs to have been linked with his services (via the Mirror).
Liverpool.com says: It was always unlikely that Liverpool would splash out so much money on Osimhen, and should this new deal go through,
we can all but rule it out. If Napoli manages to get him to sign the contract, that will be quite a coup,
and gives the Italian club probably the best-case scenario with a move elsewhere surely on the cards in the future.
