For the most anticipated tie of the FA Cup 3rd round, Liverpool will be without two of their most important players – and possibly a third. Mo Salah, who picked up an injury against Leicester, is not fit. Both he and Sadio Mane will travel to the CAF Awards 48 hours before the game, which also casts doubts on Mane’s availability. Philippe Coutinho, rumoured once again to be going to Barcelona, is also “injured”.
Virgil van Dijk is expected to make his Liverpool debut but there is a definite question mark over the goalkeepers. Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius are the two main ‘keepers this season, but Danny Ward was expected to play the domestic cup games this campaign but Liverpool’s early exit to Leicester in the Carabao Cup has limited Ward’s pitch time.
Youngsters Ben Woodburn and Harry Wilson may be given an opportunity to stake a claim in the first team. Ben Woodburn is more likely to feature after being on the bench against Burnley.
