UEFA Champions League

RMA v LIV: How Klopp could setup his side to overturn a 5-2 deficit vs Real Madrid in the UCL

Liverpool head coach, Jurgen Klopp will have to work around the absence of four first-team players for tomorrow's UEFA Champions League second leg clash against Carlo Ancelotti's Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu

Calvin Ramsey, Joe Gomez, Luis Diaz, Thiago Alcantara are all unlikely to travel with the rest of the group to Madrid for this match due to their respective injuries as the Merseyside based outfit attempt to turn around a 5-2 deficit from the opening leg three week back

Naby Keita is doubtful owning to a knock & even if he's fully deemed fit, the Guinea international is unlikely to be considered for a starting berth.

The experienced duo of Fabinho and Jordan Henderson are likely to be given the green light to start in the engine room with the youthful duo of Stefan Bajcetic and Harvey Elliott set for a place on the substitutes bench.

The latter was substituted for Diogo Jota to come in at the interval against Bournemouth at the weekend & the Portuguese attacker may have earned himself a starting position after positively adding to Liverpool's frontline the last time out.

Which could see the German tactician make some alter in his formation allowing Jota, Mohamed Salah, Cody Gakpo and Darwin Nunez get a spot in the final third.

Trent Alexander-Arnold will be suspended for the next round if he gets a booking in tomorrow's match, but he isn't under any threat to give up his position and will join hands with Virgil van Dijk, Robertson, Konate and Allison Becker to keep out the Real Madrid attackers.
