Missing Players and team news:


Leeds captain Cooper begins a three-match suspension following his straight red card against Man City, so Robin Koch will hope to be given the nod in the heart of defence over Pascal Struijk. Jack Harrison returns after being unable to face his parent club, but Leeds continue to sweat over the fitness of Raphinha, who was forced off with seconds remaining at the Etihad and will need to pass a late fitness test for this game. Rodrigo remains out of contention as he battles his way back from a muscular issue, and Helder Costa could keep his spot in the team if Raphinha does not make the cut. As well as long-term absentees Jordan Henderson, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Virgil van Dijk, Curtis Jones’s muscular issue appears to be more serious than first thought, as he was not involved in any capacity against Real Madrid. Klopp’s decision to start Roberto Firmino over Diogo Jota did not pay dividends in midweek, so the Portuguese attacker will certainly hope to come back for Monday’s game. James Milner was given the nod in midfield over Thiago for the visit of Real, but the Spaniard – along with Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – are both pushing for inclusion in the middle.
