Nottingham Forest trio Jack Colback (back), Moussa Niakhate (thigh) and Omar Richards (calf) will miss again, while Harry Toffolo injured his hamstring just 17 minutes after facing Brighton midweek and is also absent. Lewis O’Brien, meanwhile, is still struggling to overcome an illness.
However, there is optimism about Renan Lodi’s availability following a sprained ankle, which could see Serge Aurier retire when Neco Williams switches to his favorite right-back role. As for Liverpool, Jota won’t get a chance to replicate his FA Cup success at the City Ground this time around, as the Portuguese attacker has now been ruled out for the World Cup due to the calf injury he suffered in the dying embers against Manchester City.
Therefore, Klopp’s options on the left side are limited, with Luis Diaz still out with a knee injury, while Arthur (thigh), Naby Keita (thigh), Joel Matip (calf) and Ibrahima Konate (muscle) are also out of contention. With a crucial Champions League draw against Ajax to come, Klopp shouldn’t shy away from changes here, and Mohamed Salah’s place could be at risk if Harvey Elliott’s fresh legs are used.
