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

Sports Mole rounds up all of Liverpool's injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash with Crystal Palace.

Liverpool will aim to maintain their unbeaten start to the 2021-22 Premier League season when they welcome Crystal Palace to Anfield on Saturday afternoon.

The Reds enter this game having just come out on top in a five-goal Champions League thriller with AC Milan, as Jordan Henderson and Mohamed Salah netted after Fikayo Tomori's own goal.

Jurgen Klopp's side eased to a 3-0 victory over Leeds United in their most recent league encounter, although that triumph at Elland Road was overshadowed by a nasty injury to one of the club's up-and-coming starlets.

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