Every Liverpool player available for LASK as five players out after Alisson injury blow

Liverpool will play LASK in the Europa League on Thursday night, with five players set to be missing for Jürgen Klopp.

The Reds currently are top of Group E despite their disappointing 3-2 defeat to Ligue 1 outfit Toulouse before the international break.

Jürgen Klopp will be eager to get his side back to winning ways at Anfield later today, with the Reds taking confidence into the clash following a positive 1-1 draw with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium last weekend.

Liverpool will also know they’re capable of beating their upcoming Austrian opponents LASK, after securing an impressive 3-1 win away from home in the reverse fixture back in September.

Goals from Mohamed Salah, Luis Díaz and Darwin Núñez quickly canceled out a first-half opener from LASK’s Florian Flecker, with the Reds hoping to replicate the same outcome later today.

After receiving the boosts of Ryan Gravenberch, Curtis Jones and Joe Gomez all returning to first-team training last week, Liverpool has quickly been brought back down to earth after losing both Alisson Becker and Diogo Jota due to setbacks picked up against City.

Caoimhín Kelleher is now likely set for a spell in the starting line-up for the Reds, following an injury to their first-choice shot-stopper, while Klopp can thankfully call upon the likes of Díaz or Cody Gakpo to fill in for the injured Jota.

Kostas Tsimikas is also likely to feature at left-back due to long-term absentee Andy Robertson continuing his recovery from a shoulder injury.

Elsewhere, Klopp could also rotate his central defenders with a well-deserved rest for Virgil van Dijk, as the likes of Ibrahima Konaté or youngster Jarell Quansah will fill in for the Liverpool captain.

Here is the full list of players available to the manager as the Reds look to secure their place in the knockout stage of the Europa League.

Goalkeepers: Caoimhín Kelleher, Vítězslav Jaroš, Fabian Mrozek.

Defenders: Virgil van Dijk, Ibrahima Konaté, Joël Matip, Joe Gomez, Kostas Tsimikas, Jarell Quansah, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Luke Chambers, Calum Scanlon.

Forwards: Luis Díaz, Mohamed Salah, Cody Gakpo, Darwin Núñez, Ben Doak.
