Liverpool welcome League One team Shrewsbury to Anfield in the third round of the FA Cup on Sunday as they battle a Covid-19 outburst at the club.
Pep Lijnders followed manager Jurgen Klopp when he tested positive for Covid-19, as the club was forced to take action and close its training center earlier this week. Their semi-final meeting in the Carabao Cup with Arsenal was also postponed.
The Reds canceled their FA Youth Cup match with Burnley this week with several U18 year olds taking part in this weekend’s match.
It remains to be seen which players will be missing for Liverpool, but this is how the Reds can line up.
