Liverpool have named five youth team players in their side to face Shrewsbury at home in the FA Cup third round after a Covid-affected build-up this week.

Conor Bradley, Tyler Morton, Kaide Gordon, Elijah Dixon-Bonner and Max Woltman - the latter pair making their first senior starts - are included in a lineup which also boasts first-team regulars Virgil Van Dijk, Ibrahima Konate, Andy Robertson, Fabinho and Curtis Jones.

Roberto Firmino and Joel Matip, having recovered from Covid this week, are on the bench alongside another four academy players.

Defender Trent Alexander-Arnold misses out after testing positive following last week’s draw at Chelsea but the right-back is expected to resume training in the next few days.

Manager Jurgen Klopp is also back after his self-isolation to take charge.

Liverpool starting XI: Kelleher, Bradley, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Morton, Dixon-Bonner, Gordon, Jones, Woltman

Subs: Adrian, Firmino, Minamino, Tsimikas, Matip, Mabaya, Norris, Balagizi, Frauendorf
