Jordan Henderson (knee) and Joel Matip (toe) remain out ahead of Wednesday’s match at Arsenal, while James Milner (muscle) isn’t expected to be available until next week’s clash with Chelsea.
Jurgen Klopp otherwise reported a clean bill of health for the midweek game, so has plenty of competition for places as the Reds chase down a record Premier League points tally.

Trent Alexander-Arnold and Naby Keita will be expectant of recalls after only emerging as substitutes against Burnley on Saturday, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain another option in the middle of the park (or further forward) after a nine-minute cameo against the Clarets.
Andrew Robertson, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have all had breathers in either Gameweeks 33+ and 34+ so will be expecting to start, while Fabinho is also a shoo-in in the ‘number six’ role with Henderson and Milner sidelined.
Takumi Minamino, Xherdan Shaqiri or Divock Origi could come in for Salah if the indefatigable Egyptian is deemed in need of a rest, with Dejan Lovren an option at centre-half should Gomez make way.
Neco Williams looks set to drop out after consecutive starts and join Harvey Elliott and Curtis Jones on the bench at the Emirates.
