Jose Mourinho has confirmed Luke Shaw and Henrikh Mkhitaryan are available heading into the Liverpool clash.

The Portuguese boss has been speaking in his press conference ahead of the fixture where he also confirmed all his players have arrived back fit and well from international duty.

It’s brilliant news for the side and their return to fitness will be a massive boost for Mourinho as the club head into a busy month of fixtures.

Shaw has played a vital role under Mourinho this season, while Mkhitaryan has struggled to find his feet at Old Trafford since his summer move from Borussia Dortmund.

Rushing Mkhitaryan back into action from his injury against Manchester City was a huge mistake, Mourinho should continue his process of easing the Armenian into football in England.

Although Daley Blind has done an impressive job at left-back, he hasn’t been able to fill the gap left by the absence of Shaw and his return will strengthen our backline.

It’s a massive boost to have the pair back in action and their return to fitness will open up plenty of options for Mourinho at Anfield.
