Liverpool have no fresh injury concerns ahead of Sunday’s home game against Aston Villa.
Manager Jurgen Klopp says he will field his strongest available side for the remainder of the season.
Villa left-back Matt Targett will miss at least the next two games because of a hamstring injury.
Fit-again pair Frederic Guilbert and Danny Drinkwater are hoping to play for the first time since the Premier League’s resumption.
I am at this game for BBC Radio 5 live and I only see one winner.
Liverpool were well beaten at the Etihad Stadium on Thursday but this is where we will see their response. The only way I could make a case for Aston Villa getting anything at Anfield is if Reds boss Jurgen Klopp decides to play a few of the kids.
I know Villa are fighting for their lives, but they can’t defend. They won’t be able to keep Liverpool out.
