Defending champions Liverpool are without club captain Jordan Henderson and fellow Englishman Joe Gomez after they both succumbed to injury on international duty. The reds are also without top-scorer Mohammed Salah due to two positive coronavirus tests while representing Egypt, as well young superstar Trent Alexander-Arnold who’s still out with a calf issue.
