Liverpool Vs Nottingham Forest: Team News Possible Line-up

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has reveal summer signing Darwin Nunez is a fitness doubt ahead of today’s trip to face Nottingham Forest.

Jurgen Klopp side came through Wednesday’s narrow win over West Ham thanks to penalty saver Alison.

In attack, Luis Diaz (knee) and Diogo Jota (calf) will not return until after the World Cup,

meaning Klopp may stick with the 4-2-2-2 system he has deployed in recent weeks.

That would see Fabio Carvalho and Mohamed Salah flank Roberto Firmino and Nunez, pending the Uruguayan’s fitness.

Nunez left the midweek win at Anfield early with a hamstring issue and Klopp did not have a definitive answer on his availability.

Klopp on Friday:

“We have to check. He had treatment yesterday, we’ll have to see.”

 

Naby Keita and Ibrahima Kontate will miss this weekend’s match but will return to full training at the start of next week,

while Klopp confirmed that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is not ready to start against Forest but is “one or two weeks ahead” of Keita in terms of his recovery.

The absence of Konate and Joel Matip means Joe Gomez should continue in the starting line-up as he looks to make a late bid for a place in England’s World Cup squad.

Possible Liverpool Line-up:

Alisson;

Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson;

Fabinho, Thiago;

Salah, Carvalho;

Nunez, Firmino.
