Liverpool team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Crystal Palace

:Headline: Liverpool team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Crystal Palace:
Sports Mole rounds up Liverpool's injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash with Crystal Palace.
Sports Mole

Liverpool can surge to the summit of the Premier League table - for at least a couple of hours - when they meet Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park at Saturday lunchtime.

The Reds made it three wins on the bounce in all tournaments with a 2-0 beating of Sheffield United on Wednesday, where Virgil van Dijk and Dominik Szoboszlai came up with the decisive moments.

Jurgen Klopp's crop remain just two points worse off than Arsenal following the midweek round of matches, and with the Gunners not in action until 3pm on Saturday, victory for Liverpool versus Palace would allow them to sit pretty in first place for a short while.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their clash with the Eagles, who were bested 2-0 by Bournemouth on Wednesday evening.


Alexis Mac Allister

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: December 9 (vs. Palace)

Alexis Mac Allister sustained a knock to the knee in the first half of Wednesday's game and ultimately had to be withdrawn just before the hour mark. Klopp revealed that the midfielder's wound required stitches, so it is difficult to see him being passed fit for the showdown at Selhurst Park.


Joel Matip

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

Joel Matip suffered a complete ACL rupture in last weekend's thrilling 4-3 win over Fulham, and the Cameroonian defender is expected to spend the rest of the season on the sidelines, potentially bringing a bitter end to his Reds career ahead of his contract expiry in the summer.


Alisson Becker

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Thigh
Possible return date: December 9 (vs. Crystal Palace)

Alisson Becker should be the first on the conveyor belt out of the Liverpool infirmary as he battles back from a thigh injury, and he has returned to full training ahead of Saturday, so a Selhurst Park comeback is not out of the question.


Diogo Jota

Status: Out
Type of injury: Muscular
Possible return date: December 26 (vs. Burnley)

Similarly to Alisson, Diogo Jota had to be taken off against Manchester City last month with a muscular problem, which will not heal as quickly as his goalkeeper's affliction, but he could still return before the calendar year is up.


Andrew Robertson

Status: Out
Type of injury: Shoulder
Possible return date: January 1 (vs. Newcastle United)

Andrew Robertson went under the knife two months ago to correct a dislocated shoulder, and while he is making steady progress in his recovery, the New Year is still seen as his likeliest comeback date.


Thiago Alcantara

Status: Out
Type of injury: Hip
Possible return date: January 1 (vs. Newcastle United)

Thiago Alcantara has not been seen in a Liverpool jersey since April owing to a hip injury, and having also suffered two setbacks, the Spanish midfielder will also remain out until at least January.


Stefan Bajcetic

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

Stefan Bajcetic fully recovered from an adductor injury before being sidelined again by a calf problem, and there is currently no indication when the teenager might be back in action.
