Fulham boss Marco Silva will welcome indispensable midfielder Joao Palhinha back to the engine room with open arms after the Portugal international missed the win over Wolves through suspension; either Tom Cairney or Harrison Reed will make way.

The Cottagers also emerged unscathed from their beating of Wolves, but Issa Diop is not expected back from his foot problem just yet, while Adama Traore (thigh) and Rodrigo Muniz (knee) are also out of contention for the time being.

With both Iwobi and Willian making the net bulge against Wolves, ex-Liverpool winger Harry Wilson should be denied a starting berth against his former employers, but Silva has a dilemma in defence following Tosin Adarabioyo's recovery from a groin procedure.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Leno; Castagne, Bassey, Ream, Robinson; Palhinha, Reed; Iwobi, Pereira, Willian; Jimenez

None of Klopp's troops came out of the win over LASK with a new injury concern to report, which is more than can be said of the Reds' stalemate with Man City last weekend, where both Alisson Becker and Diogo Jota tweaked leg muscles in the second half.

Alisson will remain in the treatment room for another couple of weeks, allowing Caoimhin Kelleher to make only his sixth Premier League start for the Reds, while Jota's issue is a more severe one, and Klopp cannot say with any certainty when the Portuguese attacker might return.

Diaz should therefore hold his place in the hosts' attack for the visit of Fulham, where Klopp will remain without his trio of long-term absentees in Andrew Robertson (shoulder), Thiago Alcantara (hip) and Stefan Bajcetic (calf), while Salah needs just one more strike to bring up a terrific 200 for the Merseyside giants.

Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Kelleher; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Tsimikas; Szoboszlai, Mac Allister, Jones; Salah, Nunez, Diaz
