Liverpool lineup could be at its full strength going against Villarreal

Liverpool are currently having a near full squad available to face the ‘yellow Submarines’.

Although, Liverpool’s Brazilian midfielder Roberto Firmino is ruled out of the game with a foot injury.

He sat out for the Newcastle game as well in the Premier League last well.

Roberto Firmino will remain sidelined until further progress, to his foot injury which he picked up in the City game.

Liverpool youngster Curtis Jones had also recovered from an illness to be benched against the Magpies.

The Derby hero Divock Origi, was also seen training with the team ahead of the Champions League game.

Joe Gomez and Joel Matip were brought in the last game in place of regular Ibrahima Konate and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Both Konate and Trent Alexander-Arnold look certain to get their places back in the starting line-up against Villarreal.

The magician Thiago Alcantara is expected to be back as well, for his place in the heart of Liverpool’s team.

The Egyptian King, Mo Salah who was amongst the substitutes in the last game looks to be started in the upcoming game.

Sadio Mane the goal scorer of the first leg would look to continue on the great form and see his team through to the finals.

Liverpool’s great run

The Reds are having a great run in all competitions currently, and are on their way to an unprecedented quadruple this season.

Liverpool are very well placed in the FA Cup finals, and look certain in doing well in the Premier League as they trail by just one point.

It would be an interesting clash come this Tuesday night as Villarreal will be backed by their home crowd.

But, Liverpool would also be at their best against the current Europa League holders.
