Klopp: Salah not unplayable

In all likeliness, Klopp may call on the services of Roberto Firmino and Senegalese striker Sadio Mane after both were rested for the weekend tie against Chelsea.

The player who got the nod ahead of Mane and Firmino was Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Alberto Moreno is in at left-back, with Joe Gomez right-back. Dejan Lovren is also passed fit from a knock that forced him to miss the draw with Chelsea, with Ragnar Klavan dropped from the squad entirely due to illness.

After a hard start to life on Merseyside, the ex-Arsenal man is really starting to pick up his form again but has still only earned himself two Premier League starts since his summer move.

Jordan Henderson, Daniel Sturridge and James Milner are also among the substitutes in what's a strong bench for the Reds.

He was eventually introduced during the second half along with Adam Lallana after Willian managed to find an equalizer for Chelsea.

"Probably we will make one or two changes from the last game to the next game and then maybe not for the next game".

Here is your #SCFC starting XI for tonight's @premierleague game with @LFC.

As far as Stoke City are concerned, Mark Hughes has made two changes to the side that lost to Crystal Palace last weekend, with Bruno Martins Indi and Peter Crouch returning to the lineup. Brendan Rodgers' men were handed a crushing defeat at the hands of Stoke who ran out 6-1 winners on the final day of the 2015/16 season.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insists Mohamed Salah is not unplayable, but he is happy with the in-form forward.

Liverpool face a struggling Stoke side at the Bet365 Stadium on Wednesday, but Oxlade-Chamberlain has insisted it will be a typically tough challenge.
