Jurgen Klopp has named his strongest available side for the late kick-off against Crystal Palace
James Milner has been ruled out of Liverpool’s matchday squad against Crystal Palace due to illness, with Alberto Moreno filling in for him at Selhurst Park.
The England international is the only absentee from Jurgen Klopp’s preferred XI, who all return to the starting line-up after the manager made 11 changes for Tuesday’s EFL Cup victory over Tottenham.
Milner missed full training on Thursday, doing individual work instead. He attempted to join the squad in Friday’s session but it was evident that he was still unwell and it was decided not to risk him.
Meanwhile, Daniel Sturridge, scorer of both Liverpool goals in the 2-1 win over Mauricio Pochettino’s men, is back on the bench with Roberto Firmino leading the line.
Emre Can keeps his place in midfield as Georginio Wijnaldum is held in reserve.
Sadio Mane, who has scored thrice in his last five games against Palace, will want to continue his fine record against them on Saturday.
Liverpool starting XI: Karius, Clyne, Lovren, Matip, Moreno, Henderson, Can, Lallana, Mane, Coutinho, Firmino Subs: Mignolet, Klavan, Randall, Lucas, Wijnaldum, Sturridge, Origi.
