Injury News

Liverpool are expected to have the full squad available against Chelsea.

Andy Robertson is back from an ankle injury earlier than expected, and was on the bench last week against Burnley. He declared himself fully fit midweek, and is a big boost for the Reds and what they like to do.

Fabinho is back with the team after missing last weekend’s match. The Brazilian’s father passed away and he was away from the squad to be with family.

Barring a very unexpected late setback, everyone else is available.

Tough Draws

Draws for the Carabao Cup and Champion League took place this week, and Liverpool got tough draws in both.

Liverpool drew Norwich away in the Carabao Cup. It is the 18th time out of 27 games under Jurgen Klopp that Liverpool have drawn Premier League opposition in a domestic cup.

The next day, Liverpool drew Atletico Madrid, Porto and AC Milan in the Champions League.

It is a tough group, with the four sides holding 15 European Cups combined. Liverpool will have to play well to advance.
