Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Liverpool could line up for Saturday's Premier League clash with Fulham.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has a number of injury concerns to factor in for Saturday's Premier League opener with Fulham at Craven Cottage.

Diogo Jota, Caoimhin Kelleher and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are all guaranteed to miss out, while Ibrahima Konate has ruled himself out after coming off with a blow to the knee against Strasbourg.

Kostas Tsimikas and Curtis Jones will be absent as well, and Naby Keita is trying to recover from illness in time, but Klopp has already confirmed that Alisson Becker will feature after battling back from an abdominal injury.

Adrian's brief time in goal will therefore come to an end this weekend, as Alisson prepares to be protected by the familiar pairing of Joel Matip and Virgil van Dijk.

Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson will bomb down the flanks as ever, while Jordan Henderson could get the nod alongside Fabinho and Thiago Alcantara in the middle.

Mohamed Salah and Luis Diaz's places out wide are safe, with the former seeking to score on the opening day of the Premier League season for the sixth year in a row.

Roberto Firmino got the nod over Darwin Nunez for the Community Shield, and despite the Uruguayan's goal off the bench, Firmino could start again as Nunez becomes accustomed to the English game.

Liverpool possible starting lineup: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago; Salah, Firmino, Diaz
