Klopp else has a full list of options to pick from and is anticipated to bring Ibrahima Konate straight back into the side, with the Frenchman scoring in both legs of the quarter-final win over Benfica.
Jordan Henderson and Luis Diaz can also anticipate recalls to the first XI after chancing themselves among the backups at the weekend, while Mohamed Salah needs just four further Champions League pretensions to set a new record for English clubs in the competition; the Egyptian’s 33 is only bettered by Sergio Aguero and Didier Drogba’s 36.
Meanwhile, former Liverpool left-back Alberto Moreno won’t be reuniting with his former club this week as he remains on the comeback trail from a ruptured cruciate ligament, while star bushwhacker Gerard Moreno is also set to miss out.
The 30- time-old could return from a hamstring problem in time for the alternate leg but isn’t anticipated to take part at Anfield, while Francis Coquelin has been training with the group and should be fine to take his place in the XI. Yeremi Pino has also picked up a fresh hamstring injury and will be absent.
As a result, the only real dilemma for Emery lies in the attacking third, with Chukwueze and Manu Trigueros battling to deputise for Moreno alongside Arnaut Danjuma, who has been linked with a move to Liverpool in recent months.
Expected Starting Lineup
Liverpool predicted starting lineup: Alisson; AlexanderArnold, Konate; Van Dijk- Robertson; Henderson; Fabinho, Thiago; Salah- Mane, Diaz
Villarreal predicted starting lineup: Rulli; Foyth, Albiol, Torres; Estupinan- Parejo, Coquelin- Capoue- Lo Celso; Chukwueze; Danjuma
