Liverpool should go into the game on a high after their midweek heroics in the Champions League, where they beat Bayern Munich 3-1 in Bavaria to progress to the quarter-finals of Europe's top tournament.

The club's official website have confirmed that influential midfielder Jordan Henderson will miss the trip to Fulham as a consequence.

In more positive news for the Merseyside outfit, Jurgen Klopp is set to welcome box-to-box man Naby Keita back into his first-team squad.

Liverpool fans are dreaming of their first top-flight title since 1990 and returning back to the top of the table ahead of the two-week international break would be a mental boost for the Reds.
