Thiago Alcantara (hamstring) has joined Diogo Jota (thigh), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (hamstring), Caoimhin Kelleher (muscle), Ibrahima Konate (muscle), Curtis Jones (muscle) on the sidelines for Monday’s clash with Crystal Palace but Naby Keita has recovered from illness and Kostas Tsimikas (knock) could also be involved as he returns to training today.

“We have now, in the moment, definitely too many injuries, that’s clear. A couple of boys are coming back. Naby will be back for Monday, Kostas will train today for the first time so he might be back as well.

“Thiago is good, but the injury is not good. I read four to six weeks [for a timeframe]. I would prefer four!” – Jurgen Klopp
