Liverpool team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Red Bull Salzburg

Sports Mole rounds up Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Tuesday's crucial Champions League Group E clash with Red Bull Salzburg.

Liverpool know that they must avoid defeat when they take on Red Bull Salzburg on Tuesday night if they are to book their place in the last 16 of the Champions League.

The holders currently sit top of Group E heading into their final match, but they are only one point clear of Napoli and three above Salzburg, who could overtake the Reds with a victory courtesy of their head-to-head record.

Jurgen Klopp's side have only suffered one defeat across all competitions this season, though, and will be guaranteed a spot in the knockout rounds with a draw or win in Austria.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest.
