Liverpool are preparing to make do without Roberto Firmino for the trip to West Ham United in the Premier League on Sunday.
The Brazilian attacker came off with a “serious” hamstring injury against Atletico Madrid in midweek and is now set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
The Reds were already confirmed to be without Harvey Elliott, Naby Keita and James Milner once more, while Curtis Jones (eye) and Joe Gomez (calf) will also play no part in the contest.
Kostas Tsimikas has certainly given Jurgen Klopp a selection headache at left-back, but the German coach has referred to Andy Robertson as the best in the world in his position as the Scotsman prepares to return.
Ibrahima Konate will expect to displace Joel Matip at the back alongside Virgil van Dijk, while Fabinho‘s return to fitness has been one of the few positive stories from the Liverpool midfield in recent weeks.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain impressed Klopp with his performance against Atletico Madrid, but a refreshed Thiago Alcantara may now be considered for a start after battling his way back from a calf issue.
Diogo Jota is guaranteed to lead the line with Firmino out, and Mohamed Salah will aim to become the first player in Premier League history to score in each of his side’s first six games away from home in a season.
Liverpool possible starting lineup: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago; Salah, Jota, Mane
