The Reds are looking to make it three wins on the bounce from a tricky start to the Premier League season, but Unai Emery’s side will present a tough challenge.
Klopp also has a number of injuries to contend with, as well as a suspension for his captain following an early dismissal at St James’ Park.
Here is the full overview of who is available for selection on Sunday and who will miss out:
- Curtis Jones (knock) – available
- Stefan Bajcetic (adductor) – available
- Ibrahima Konate (muscle) – unavailable
- Conor Bradley (back) – unavailable
- Thiago (hip) – unavailable
- Virgil van Dijk (suspension) – unavailable
- Ryan Gravenberch (not registered) – unavailable
Ibrahima Konate remains unavailable as he nurses a muscle injury, but his call-up to the France squad suggests the issue is a minor one.
Conor Bradley is likely to be out of action until at least November after suffering a stress fracture in his back.
The wait for the return of Thiago continues, with Klopp confirming he has suffered a “little setback” on the road to recovery from the hip injury that has kept him out since April.
New signing Ryan Gravenberch wasn’t signed in time to be registered for this fixture, his debut will wait until after the international break.
