Klopp may look to rest some key players such as Mo Salah and Virgil van Dijk should he wish to do so.

The visitors have no problems to worry about.

Marko Grujic, who was sold to Porto in the summer, could start on his Anfield return.

Liverpool-linked Luis Diaz also set to play from the outset, while the much-maligned Pepe could be named in the line-up.
