“Without the injured Virgil van Dijk, Liverpool plays a little as if they knew that their back door is slightly open.
“Fabinho’s hamstring injury in the middle of the week is clearly not helpful in this department. It’s extremely unlikely that he’ll play in this game, but at least it doesn’t look like he’ll be absent for much longer.
“Having Alisson back in goal is a great boost, but he’s not coming in for crosses, so the Reds will have to find a way to deal with that.

“Both are in a good way. So it is with recreation. You saw what happened to Thiago. It takes time to calm down, but we don’t know exactly how long. He is desperately trying to take the next steps.

Who plays as central defender?
And who’s playing with Joe Gomez as central defender this weekend?
Fabinho and Joel Matip will probably not be fit, while Virgil van Dijk will be out this season.
So will Jurgen Klopp turn to Jordan Henderson or Gini Wijnaldum as an emergency option?
Or will Nat Phillips, Rhys Williams, or Billy Koumetio be awarded the contract if the German decides to go for the youth?
