James Milner could play in the right-back position as The Reds' full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold is out of the squad due to his knee injury. Liverpool is going to face Crystal Palace without Dejan Lovren and Joe Gomez, as they are both out with injury.
Shaqiri could start again in the midfield with Henderson and Fabinho, while it is expected that Mo Salah could make yet another start for The Reds.
There are not as many injury concerns in the Crystal Palace camp. Their goalkeepers Wayne Hennessey and Vicente Guaita are doubts for this weekend, and their 3rd choice goalkeeper Julian Speroni could start under the bar for the Eagles.
Wan-Bissaka and Van-Aanholt could start with the fellow defenders Tomkins and ex-Liverpool defender Sakho. Zaha is the man who could be a threat to the Liverpool defence.
Liverpool: Alisson; Milner, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Henderson, Shaqiri, Mane, Firmino; Salah.
Crystal Palace: Speroni; Wan-Bissaka, Tomkins, Sakho, Van Aanholt; Kouyate, Milivojevic, McArthur, Meyer, Townsend; Zaha.
