Rafa Benitez’s side has lost 4 of their 5 previous games and they are winless in their last 7 games. Despite the poor form, the manager has been under pressure for losing his job and would try to redeem himself with a good performance against the Reds.

Meanwhile, the Reds will have the same absentees that they had against Southampton – Naby Keita, Joe Gomez, Harvey Elliott, Roberto Firmino and Curtis Jones. While Thiago Alcantara was subbed off just under an hour against the Saints, he will most likely be fit to play.

With no non-attenders apart from the aforementioned, Klopp will be hesitant to rotate for a heated derby. Hence, Ibrahim Konate is expected to keep his place over Joel Matip.
