Liverpool vs LASK Linz Team News & Injuries

Liverpool

Liverpool will welcome LASK to Anfield off the back of an impressive and hard-fought 1-1 draw away to title rivals Manchester City which will have fans and players buzzing heading into this must-win game. However, they will still be haunted by their shocking display last time out in the Europa League when they lost to Toulouse. There's a major injury concern for Jurgen Klopp as Alisson went down with a hamstring injury on Saturday afternoon.

Predicted Lineup: Kelleher (GK), Gomez, Konate, Quansah, Tsimikas, Gravenberch, Endo, Elliott, Diaz, Gakpo, Salah

LASK

LASK are also coming off the back of a solid result picking up three points at home to WSG Tirol leaving LASK five points behind RB Salzburg. The Austrian outfit find themselves just one point behind Union Saint-Gilloise, so any sort of result at Anfield would be a major boost for their hopes of staying in some form of European competition.

Predicted Lineup: Lawal (GK), Ziereis, Andrade, Talovyerov, Stojkovic, Ljubic, Horvath, Bello, Mustapha, Zulj, Usor

Official lineups are usually released approximately one hour before kick-off.

Player to Watch: Harvey Elliott

Named on the bench against Manchester City, this is the competition where Harvey Elliott has to prove his worth to get more league minutes.

Played 90 minutes in every Europa League game so Klopp clearly sees him as a key part of their charge in this competition.

Elliott sits fourth in the Liverpool squad when it comes to expected assists, so he could take control on Thursday.
