Liverpool will travel to the Bet365 Stadium this week, as they are set to face Mark Hughes’ Stoke City on Wednesday night, in the Premier League.
The Reds were on a three-match winning run in the league, until that was brought to a halt when they were held to a 1-1 draw at the Anfield by reigning champions Chelsea on Saturday. And manager Jurgen Klopp will be hoping his side get back to winning ways and put pressure on the top-four of the table to try and carve out a place for themselves.
Midfielder Emre Can and defender Dejan Lovren are slightly doubtful for the game due to injuries, while reserve goalkeepers Danny Ward and Adam Bogdan still remain sidelined alongside long-term absentee Nathaniel Clyne.
The Belgian is the chosen goalkeeper for the league games and that should stay the same against Stoke.
The young defender could find himself back in the starting XI, at right-back, in place of England international Joe Gomez.
The Cameroonian made his return from injury against Chelsea and was very solid. Klopp will be hoping for more of the same from the former Schalke man.
With Dejan Lovren an injury doubt, Estonian centre-half Ragnar Klavan is likely to get another run out in the starting line-up on Wednesday.
The Spaniard has firmly established himself as the first-choice in the left-back position ahead of Andy Robertson. That is unlikely to change.
The Netherlands international could return to the starting setup against the Potters, with veteran midfielder James Milner making way for him.
The club captain remains a trusted lieutenant for Klopp and he will start as the deepest of the midfield trio for the Reds.
Completing the midfield triumvirate for Liverpool should be Brazilian playmaker Philippe Coutinho. Will be the main string-puller for his side.
The Premier League’s top goal-scorer is looking unstoppable at the moment and will pose the biggest attacking threat to Stoke on Wednesday.
The Brazilian forward was controversially dropped for the draw against Chelsea but should be reinstated to the starting XI in place of Daniel Sturridge.
Another player who was surprisingly excluded for the weekend fixture, the Senegalese should return to the line-up, despite his bust-up with the manager.
