Fulham are set to be without Harry Wilson and Nathaniel Chalobah, who have both picked up injuries in pre-season.

Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson is back after missing the Community Shield through injury while Naby Keita will be assessed after illness.

Ibrahima Konate, Curtis Jones and Kostas Tsimikas have all been ruled out.

The Reds will also be without Diogo Jota, Caoimhin Kelleher and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who are recovering from injuries sustained over the summer.

Ali is right to say that I'm not going to follow Lawro and back Liverpool to win every week - I want to banish that kind of bias!

But he's wrong to think I'm going to say they will lose this one.

Liverpool were very good in the Community Shield and Saturday is going to be a difficult day for Fulham on their return to the top flight. I think they will struggle all season, too.
