Liverpool team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Chelsea

Sports Mole rounds up all of Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Thursday's Premier League showdown with fellow top-four hopefuls Chelsea at Anfield.

Liverpool welcome Chelsea to Anfield on Thursday night with just one point and one place separating the top-four hopefuls in the Premier League table.

The champions finally returned to winning ways following a four-game losing streak with victory over Sheffield United on Sunday, welcoming both James Milner and Naby Keita back from injury in the process.

However, they remain on a four-game losing run at home - only the second time that has ever happened in their history - and face a Chelsea side still unbeaten in nine outings under new manager Thomas Tuchel.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Thursday's showdown.



Alisson Becker

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Personal
Possible return date: March 4 (vs. Chelsea)

Alisson missed the win over Sheffield United on compassionate grounds following the tragic death of his father in a swimming accident last week. The goalkeeper will be allowed to sit out for as long as required, but Jurgen Klopp has hinted that he is likely to return against Chelsea.



Fabinho

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Muscle
Possible return date: March 4 (vs. Chelsea)

Fabinho returned to training on Saturday and, while he missed the Sheffield United game as expected, the Brazilian is likely to be available for the visit of Chelsea.



Diogo Jota

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Illness
Possible return date: March 4 (vs. Chelsea)

Diogo Jota was in line to make his long-awaited comeback against Sheffield United, only to be struck down with illness the night before the game. The attacker has now recovered from his knee injury and returned to training last week, so he should be ready to feature on Thursday.


Jordan Henderson

Status: Out
Type of injury: Groin
Possible return date: Unknown

Jordan Henderson has undergone surgery on the groin injury he sustained during the Merseyside derby defeat to Everton, ruling him out for up to eight weeks to add to Liverpool's defensive injury woes.


Joel Matip

Status: Out
Type of injury: Ankle
Possible return date: Unknown

Joel Matip had been Liverpool's last recognised centre-back standing until he was struck down by an ankle injury which will keep him sidelined for the remainder of the season.


Joe Gomez

Status: Out
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: Unknown

Joe Gomez is also a long-term absentee with a knee injury he sustained while away on international duty with England, and it remains to be seen whether he will play again before the end of the campaign.


Virgil van Dijk

Status: Out
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: Unknown

Virgil van Dijk is also unlikely to play again this season despite a number of positive updates in his recovery from a serious ACL injury.


LIVERPOOL'S SUSPENSION LIST

Liverpool have no players suspended for this game.
