Ralf Rangnick orders 'injury review' as boss questions Man Utd medical staff with five key absences halting top four bid

RALF RANGNICK has taken a swipe at Manchester United's medical staff after revealing his frustration at his growing injury list.

The Red Devils boss is preparing to take his top-four hopefuls to title-challengers Liverpool with FIVE first-team stars out injured.

First-choice midfielders Fred and Scott McTominay are joined by defenders Luke Shaw and Raphael Varane as well as striker Edinson Cavani on the physio's table.

And Rangnick has asked why he has so many injuries to contend with despite only competing in the Premier League while a high-pressing, quick-tempo Liverpool side have zero concerns despite competing for an historic Quadruple.

A frustrated Rangnick said: “It is no excuse or alibi but this is an issue that worries me a bit – the number of injuries that we currently have.

“If we compare that with Liverpool, although they are still competing in four competitions, they have no injury problems at all.
