Ibrahima Konate partners Virgil van Dijk in central defence, while Darwin Nunez leads the line.
Luis Diaz, Thiago Alcantara, Joe Gomez and Arthur Melo are all still sidelined but Jurgen Klopp confirmed those involved in their midweek 2-0 win over Wolves were “all fine”.
“Joey is obviously closer but not close enough,” Klopp said on Friday.
It means Virgil van Dijk and Konate continue at centre-back, while Andy Robertson returns to the side having been on the bench against Wolves.
Jordan Henderson was also among the substitutes and is pushing for his spot in the starting XI, with the club captain getting the nod at Anfield.
Even with Diaz out, Klopp had decisions to make in forward areas. Mohamed Salah is a guaranteed starter in the front three, while Darwin Nunez returned from injury last time out and plays again, alongside Cody Gakpo.
Predicted Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Elliott, Henderson; Salah, Nunez, Gakpo.
