Five of the nine Liverpool players who may have played against Leicester are out, and Jürgen Klopp will likely receive a significant call-up.


Liverpool face Leicester in the Premier League, with five players on the verge of missing out for Jürgen Klopp as the Reds aim to get seven wins from the first leg.
With a draw for Newcastle United and a win for Manchester United this weekend, little has changed for Liverpool as they prepare for clash with Leicester City.

Liverpool still have slim chances of making the top four as they need to continue their winning streak (six games already) for a chance to make mistakes

Liverpool have already ruled out three players for the rest of the season, Thiago Alcântara, Stefan Bajcetic and Calvin Ramsay, while Naby Keita is yet to return.

Jürgen Klopp simply said ‘no’ when asked about the Guinean during Friday’s pre-match press conference, and it is possible he played the last few minutes for the club before departing when his contract expired.

Meanwhile, Roberto Firmino is still missing. The Brazilian striker is also close to a departure but he is hoping to return to squad training this week so he can make a farewell appearance at Anfield against Aston Villa.

That means the team will likely feature many of the same players recently, with the impressive Curtis Jones likely retaining his place on the team.

The big decision is likely to be who plays top, with five players remaining in three roles. Mohamed Salah is a certainty, while Darwin Núñez could use the minutes to integrate further. Below is the full list of players available to the manager as Liverpool seek to record seven consecutive league wins on Monday.

Goalkeepers: Alisson Becker, Caoimhin Kelleher, Adrian.
Defenders: Virgil van Dijk, Ibrahima Konate, Kostas Tsimikas, Andy Robertson, Joel Matip, Nat Phillips, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Rhys Williams, Joe Gomez.
Midfielders: Fabinho, James Milner, Jordan Henderson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Fabio Carvalho, Curtis Jones, Harvey Elliott, Arthur Melo.
Attackers: Luis Diaz, Mohamed Salah, Cody Gakpo, Darwin Núñez, Diogo Jota. Injured players: Thiago Alcântara, Roberto Firmino, Stefan Bajčetić, Calvin Ramsay, Naby Keïta.
