Alisson Becker is tonight expected to return to Liverpool’s starting lineup against Chelsea after the goalkeeper sat out their win at Sheffield United on Sunday following the death of his father. Fabinho, who has played just one of the last eight because of injury, is also set for his first appearance in the squad while Diogo Jota, whose return at Bramall Lane following nearly three months out was denied by illness, is also back for Thursday’s Premier League clash at Anfield. Klopp now has better options, with Fabinho, who has played most of the season covering at centre-back, also able to play in midfield, which means the manager could continue with the partnership of Nat Phillips and Ozan Kabak, the 14th different starting combination in 26 Premier League matches and their 17th overall this season.
