He has confirmed that Sakho will feature tonight and has even hinted that a new contract to keep him at Anfield is already being considered, with Origi also in line to make an appearance.

“We were always going to need Mama after the international break. We want to extend his contract at the club and for sure he will play tomorrow night,” he said.

“Divock is a young player settling into the club well and he will feature tomorrow.”

Summer signings Christian Benteke, Nathaniel Clyne, as well as James Milner have all been rested, with Dejan Lovren, Martin Skrtel, and Lucas Leiva also left out of the travelling squad.
