Liverpool will look to put their disappointing UCL defeat against Real Madrid behind them when they host Crystal Palace tomorrow in what will be a crucial league game for the Reds.
The Reds' hopes of winning the Champions League were dashed after losing 5-2 to Real Madrid at Anfield. A comeback will undoubtedly be difficult to produce, and we will have to see if they can do so in the second leg.
Meanwhile, they have a chance to boost their top-four hopes in the league with a win over a struggling Crystal Palace, who will also be looking to get back on track. Based on previous meetings, the Reds are in a strong position to take all three points in this game, but they must back it up with a strong performance on Saturday to ensure victory.
With that said, this article will provide you with the most recent injury news from Anfield ahead of this crucial game.
* Here are four Liverpool players who are questionable for this game:
1. Joe Gomez
The Liverpool defender suffered a severe hamstring injury in the defeat to Real Madrid, forcing him to limp down the tunnel. His fitness is currently being evaluated, making him a major doubt for this game.
2. Arthur Melo
Arthur Melo has since returned to training, but has failed to return to action due to lack of fitness. He is also a major doubt for this game.
3. Ibrahim Konate
Konate has returned to full team training after recovering from a thigh injury suffered in last month's loss to Brighton. He appears to be fit and ready to play again, but his participation in this game is dependent on Klopp's decision.
4. Luis Diaz
The Crystal Palace game will obviously be too soon for Diaz, who only recently resumed running at the beginning of the month. He has shown remarkable fortitude in his recovery and has begun training with the team. However, he is unlikely to play against Crystal Palace tomorrow.
* Here are two others who will not be available for this game due to injury problems:
1. Thiago Alcantara
Thiago Alcantara was one Liverpool player who was missed in the game against Real Madrid. The Spaniard won't be back until next month as he is still recovering from a hip injury.
2. Calvin Ramsay
Ramsay had knee surgery earlier this month and will be out for the rest of the season, making him a sure absentee for tomorrow's game against Crystal Palace.
