PALACE vs LIVERPOOL: Every player available amid Mac Allister and Alisson latest

Liverpool will hope to extend their good form as Jürgen Klopp’s side travel south to take on Crystal Palace Saturday afternoon.

The Reds picked up three points against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane, and will be hoping to do the the same at Selhurst Park against former manager Roy Hodgson.

Moreover, a win against Palace would see Liverpool sit atop the Premier League mountain once more, albeit only briefly should Arsenal win away against Aston Villa.

Liverpool have only lost one league game this season and confidence is growing that this could turn into a very successful season for the club.

The positivity has been somewhat dampened a little with the news that Joël Matip is likely to miss the rest of the season after rupturing his ACL, which Jürgen Klopp confirmed after the win in Yorkshire, in the 4-3 thriller against Fulham.

With his contract due to expire at the end of the season, it would be a sad way for the much-loved Cameroonian to leave Anfield, should he not recover before the season ends.

In the win against Sheffield United, midfielder Alexis Mac Allister picked up a knock that required stitches.

While it appeared that the Argentine would be fit, with the player giving an update on his Instagram page about his fitness, Klopp said that he was a doubt during his pre-match press conference.

Alisson is back in training after he recovered from injury, so Caoimhín Kelleher may not be needed to deputize in goal for the Reds.

There are several absentees but Klopp has mostly a full-strength squad to choose from, except for long-term casualties like Thiago Alcântara and Stefan Bajčetić, with both not expected back until the beginning of 2024.

Diogo Jota still remains unavailable, as does left-back Andy Robertson, with it unclear when the duo will be back in action. Yet Klopp still has plenty of squad depth this season and will bring a strong team to South London.

Here’s a full list of players available to the manager as the Reds face Crystal Palace.

Goalkeepers: Alisson Becker, Caoimhín Kelleher, Adrián.

Defenders: Virgil van Dijk, Ibrahima Konaté, Joe Gomez, Jarell Quansah, Kostas Tsimikas, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Conor Bradley.

Midfielders: Dominik Szoboszlai, Wataru Endō,Curtis Jones, Harvey Elliott, Ryan Gravenberch.

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