Liverpool Team News
Salah, Mane, and Keita are all gone at the Africa Cup of Nations, and it’s still unclear which players were impacted by the recent COVID epidemic in the camp.
As previously said, as far as quarantine regulations are concerned, Alisson, Firmino, and Matip should all be available, however whether any of them start at Anfield remains to be seen.
According to unconfirmed sources, Liverpool’s goalkeepers were particularly heavily hit by the epidemic this week, which might compel Alisson to play or allow Loris Karius to make his first appearance for the club since the 2018 Champions League final.
Injury has sidelined Nat Phillips, Thiago Alcantara, and Harvey Elliott, while Takumi Minamino and Divock Origi’s fitness is in doubt.
Andrew Robertson has served his three-match suspension and is free to play again, although the starting XI will most likely be made up of peripheral players and kids.

By comparison, Shrewsbury have a relatively clean bill of health, and the return of Tom Bloxham from a three-match suspension will give them a lift.
Daniel Udoh is a doubt after leaving the game against Sheffield Wednesday just before halftime, although Aaron Pierre came off the bench and could start here.
Former Everton striker Matthew Pennington scored the game-winning goal against Wednesday, and he will be trying to recreate the feat when he returns to Merseyside.
Liverpool XI: Alisson; Bradley, Gomez, Konate, Robertson; Jones, Morton, Milner; Gordon, Firmino, Minamino
Shrewsbury Town XI: Marosi; Pennington, Ebanks-Landell, Pierre; Bennett, Vela, Davis, Leahy; Whalley; Bowman, Bloxham
