Liverpool's defensive problems have once again worsened ahead of the visit of Fulham this afternoon with January signing Ozan Kabak the latest to sustain an injury.

The defender, on loan from Schalke, as the champions fell to a fifth consecutive home defeat - a 1-0 reverse to Chelsea - but reported an issue afterwards which now makes him a doubt for the weekend.

"Ozan had, after the game, a little problem," Jurgen Klopp told reporters. "We will see if he is ready for Fulham but it doesn't look like it at the moment.

Klopp has already lost centre-backs Virgil Van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip for the season, whiled Fabinho only returned after injury on Thursday.

In a rare boost, Liverpool may be able to call upon defender back Nat Phillips after he missed the Chelsea game, while there is also a chance deadline-day signing Ben Davies, who has yet to make an appearance, could be back in the squad.

Klopp added: "Nat I think will be ready, Ben as well. It's not easy for Ben, we brought him in and he has to adapt. He is a really good player. We have to be careful."

Diogo Jota transferred himself into his Fantasy Premier League team, so could he be set for a start?

Liverpool predicted lineup (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Phillips, Robertson; Thiago, Wijnaldum, Jones; Salah, Firmino, Mane

Injury list: Henderson, Van Dijk, Gomez, Matip

Doubts: Kabak, Kelleher, Phillips
