Liverpool team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Crystal Palace

Sports Mole rounds up Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's Premier League fixture at Crystal Palace.

Liverpool return to Premier League action on Saturday afternoon with a trip to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace.

Before the international break, Jurgen Klopp's side extended their advantage at the top of the standings to eight points courtesy of a 3-1 triumph over rivals Manchester City.

However, Klopp must contend with a number of selection issues before deciding on his squad for the trip to London at the weekend.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for the Merseyside giants.

Jordan Henderson

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Illness
Possible return date: November 23 (vs. Palace)

While Henderson returned to action to star against City, illness ruled the midfielder out of action for England. However, the extra recovery time could lead to the skipper being available for this game.

Mohamed Salah

Type of injury: Ankle
Possible return date: November 23 (vs. Palace)

Salah is still dealing with an ankle problem which he sustained against Leicester City last month. While the winger has had the international break to rest the injury, the Egyptian remains a major doubt ahead of the clash with Palace.

Andrew Robertson

Robertson revealed that he had been left with a swollen ankle after the win over Manchester City - an issue which ruled him out of international action with Scotland. The left-back is unlikely to feature at the weekend.
