Fulham have a comparatively clean bill of health, with Marek Rodak and Tom Cairney their only absentees for this match.

The likes of Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa, Bobby Decordova-Reid and Kenny Tete will hope to benefit from any rotation given the quick turnaround in fixtures, but Parker may keep faith with much of the side that ran Spurs so close last time out.

Josh Maja was the man controversially disallowed the equaliser in that game, and he will be hoping for another memorable trip to Merseyside having scored his only two Fulham goals so far against Everton last month.

Fulham possible starting lineup:
Areola; Aina, Andersen, Adarabioyo, Robinson; Reed, Anguissa; Cavaleiro, Loftus-Cheek, Lookman; Maja

Liverpool's centre-back curse has struck again in the wake of the Chelsea defeat, with Ozan Kabak the latest to pick up an injury.

Klopp has insisted that it is only a "little problem", but it is unlikely that the January arrival will recover in time to feature on Sunday.

There is better news for Nat Phillips, who is expected to be in contention after missing out against Chelsea with a slight lower back problem, and he could come straight back into the starting lineup.

Klopp also hinted at a desire to move Fabinho back into midfield, although that may have to wait for now despite Ben Davies providing another option to partner Phillips in defence.

Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Jordan Henderson all remain sidelined for the hosts, while back-up goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher will be assessed ahead of kickoff.

Mohamed Salah was taken off shortly after the hour mark against Chelsea but is expected to start again here, particularly given that he has directly contributed to 15 goals in his 11 home Premier League games against promoted opposition.

Diogo Jota looked sharp on his return from injury in midweek and could be pushing for a starting role should Klopp deem him fit enough.

Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Phillips, Fabinho, Robertson; Thiago, Wijnaldum, Jones; Salah, Mane, Jota
