Liverpool vs Stoke City

The Senegalese global successfully completed the full 90 minutes in Liverpool's spectacular 5-2 victory over Roma at Anfield and manager Jurgen Klopp did not mention an injury issue after the game.

Klopp's only available senior midfielders are the three players who finished Tuesday's match - Jordan Henderson, Georginio Wijnaldum and James Milner - and he can ill-afford to lose any of them to injury before the second leg of the Roma tie in Italy on Wednesday.

Sadio Mane ended a five-game run without a Premier League goal to open the scoring at the Britannia Stadium with a cheeky dinked finish over onrushing goalkeeper Lee Grant. Of course, there is something. There's a chance for tomorrow, we may use that chance. However, Liverpool's boss was visibly frustrated after seeing his side ship two late away goals to give the Italians a glimmer of hope for the second leg.

The winger returned to the training ground in the early afternoon to begin his treatment programme and told onlookers that the problem wasn't serious and that he should be fine for the game against Roma.

The Potters are without a win in their last 12 league games on the road.

"A lot of people are probably expecting [us to be] resting him, leaving him out and so on, but in the end players can be injured in training in nothing, or get ill overnight".

Should the Reds triumph, and fifth-placed Chelsea lose or draw at Swansea City, then a place in next season's Champions League would be assured with two games still to play.

Liverpool are stretched, especially in midfield, with Adam Lallana and Emre Can also out of action, and McMahon is anxious about an aggressive Stoke side inflicting further blows at the weekend.

"We are desperate for points, like Stoke are".

Having lost influential star Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona in January, Liverpool will surely be keen to avoid another high-profile midfield departure this summer.

Woodburn's versatility means he can shine on the left of a front-three, allowing Firmino to play in the central role he has shone in all season. Nathaniel Clyne and Alberto Moreno should be deployed to guard either flank, with Ragnar Klavan and Joe Gomez likely to be the centre-backs.
