Missing Players and team news:

As well as long-term absentees Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip and Jordan Henderson, Nat Phillips was ruled out of the trip to Elland Road with a minor hamstring problem, and it remains to be seen if the centre-back will make the cut this weekend. Fabinho could therefore be forced to deputise in the heart of defence once more, which would guarantee another start in midfield for Thiago, but Curtis Jones and Divock Origi also occupy spots in the infirmary. Mohamed Salah surprisingly started on the bench against Leeds but is sure to feature in the first XI this weekend, and Diogo Jota may be the unlucky member of Klopp’s front three to drop out. The luckless Allan Saint-Maximin had to be withdrawn just after the hour mark against West Ham with an ankle problem, and given his previous fitness concerns, it would be a surprise to see him line up this week. However, Callum Wilson is back in the fold and should earn a place up top in Saint-Maximin’s possible absence, but fellow attacker Ryan Fraser is not expected back from a groin problem just yet. Willock will hope to have done enough to warrant a start after two crucial goals from the bench, but Bruce may opt to keep using the Arsenal loanee as a super sub for the time being. Defensive trio Isaac Hayden, Jamaal Lascelles and Fabian Schar all remain sidelined for the long term.
