There will be at least two changes to the Liverpool line-up when they resume their Premier League campaign by hosting Burnley at Anfield.
Simon Mignolet is set to return in goal for the Reds, Jürgen Klopp confirmed at his pre-match news conference, having been a substitute for Wednesday’s Champions League clash with Sevilla.
The home side are without the services of Sadio Mane against the Clarets, however, as the Senegal international begins a three-match domestic suspension following his red card at Manchester City.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain awaits a full Liverpool debut after two substitute appearances.
Meanwhile, Philippe Coutinho is in contention to start on Saturday.
The No.10 was introduced from the bench in midweek, and Klopp said: “He should be ready. He has trained outstanding in the few sessions we’ve had so far together since he was back.”
Nathaniel Clyne and Adam Lallana remain ‘too far away to think about’ a return as they continue their rehabilitations from respective back and thigh injuries.
Burnley will travel to Merseyside without their captain, Tom Heaton, after the goalkeeper suffered a shoulder injury last weekend and subsequently underwent surgery.
Summer signing Chris Wood has scored in each of their past two outings – a winner against Crystal Palace and previously an equaliser at Wembley to secure a draw with Tottenham Hotspur.
