    The acquisition of Gakpo comes at a perfect moment for Liverpool, who are still without Arthur, Diogo Jota, and Luis Diaz on a long-term basis, and Roberto Firmino is also unlikely to recover from his calf injury anytime soon.

    James Milner (hamstring) and Curtis Jones (shin) are also hoping for comebacks against Brentford on January 2, where Gakpo may be available if Liverpool and PSV Eindhoven can work out the technicalities.

    Ibrahima Konate, a World Cup finalist, has returned to training for Liverpool and might be one of a few of alterations during the hectic festive schedule, with the fresh legs of Harvey Elliott and Fabio Carvalho possibly potentially being used in the starting XI.

    Dennis Praet, who had just begun to fight his way back into the fray, was hit in the back by Joelinton’s knee and forced to leave after 17 minutes.

    The extent of the Belgian’s problem is unknown, but he is scheduled to sit out this game alongside Ryan Bertrand and Ricardo Pereira. James Justin, Jonny Evans, and James Maddison, whose troubling knee ailment has caused him yet another setback.

    Praet’s injury should boost the prospects of Ayoze Perez or Marc Albrighton returning to the starting lineup, while Jamie Vardy and Wilfred Ndidi may profit from some welcome rotation for the visitors.

    Possible Lineups

    Liverpool XI:
    Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson; Thiago, Fabinho, Elliott; Salah, Nunez, Carvalho

    Leicester City XI:
    Ward; Castagne, Amartey, Faes, Thomas; Ndidi, Tielemans; Perez, Dewsbury-Hall, Barnes; Vardy
