JUST IN: Full Liverpool squad available to face Wolves as Cody Gakpo included but six players ruled out

Liverpool face Wolves in the third round of the FA Cup tonight with Jurgen Klopp dealing with an injury-hit squad.


Liverpool are taking a break from Premier League action as they prepare to face Wolves this evening.


The Reds begin their defence of the FA Cup tonight as they welcome Wolves to Anfield in the third round, having overcome Chelsea in a dramatic penalty shootout at Wembley last summer.


However, Liverpool go into the tie on the back of a disappointing 3-1 defeat to Brentford on Monday night. And if that wasn’t bad enough, Jurgen Klopp is forced to deal with some injury concerns.


Virgil van Dijk is set to be sidelined for at least a month with a hamstring injury. There was also no Roberto Firmino or James Milner in training as they continue their recoveries, while Naby Keita was also nowhere to be seen, but Klopp did not say the midfielder had an injury.


Klopp will be able to call on Jordan Henderson again though after the Reds skipper missed the defeat to Brentford due to concussion. And new signing Cody Gakpo is eligible to feature, after formally completing his move from PSV Eindhoven earlier in the week.


Here is a look at the full Liverpool squad expected to feature against Wolves, barring any late injuries or withdrawals.


Goalkeepers: Adrian, Alisson, Caoimhin Kelleher.


Defenders: Andy Robertson, Ibrahima Konate, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip, Kostas Tsimikas, Nat Phillips, Calvin Ramsay, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Luke Chambers.


Midfielders: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Curtis Jones, Fabio Carvalho, Fabinho, Harvey Elliott, Jordan Henderson, Thiago Alcantara, Naby Keita, Stefan Bajcetic.


Forwards: Cody Gakpo, Darwin Nunez, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Bobby Clark, Ben Doak.

Sidelined: Arthur Melo (muscle), Virgil van Dijk (hamstring), Roberto Firmino (muscle), James Milner (muscle), Luis Diaz (knee), Diogo Jota (calf injury).
