Liverpool vs Shrewsbury Team News:


While Liverpool’s teamsheet for this encounter is more likely to be notable owing to who is absent than it is due to who is picked, the squad that goes to the field will almost certainly be a depleted one. Even though Salah, Mane, and Keita are all abroad at the Africa Cup of Nations, it is still unclear which players were impacted by the most recent COVID pandemic inside the camp.

As previously said, Alisson, Firmino, and Matip should all be available in terms of quarantine regulations, however, whether or not any of those players will start at Anfield is another story. Liverpool’s goalkeepers are said to have been especially heavily struck by this week’s pandemic, which might either force Alisson to play or allow forgotten man Loris Karius to make his first appearance for the club since the Champions League final in 2018.

There are still injury concerns for Nat Phillips, Thiago Alcantara, and Harvey Elliott. There are also questions about the health of Takumi Minamino and Divock Origi, all of whom might be in contention to play if they are available. Following the completion of his three-match suspension, Andrew Robertson will be able to play again; nonetheless, the starting XI is projected to consist mostly of periphery players and rookies.


Tom Bloxham has returned to the Shrewsbury Town squad after serving a three-match ban, and the Shrews have a reasonably clean bill of health in contrast. Daniel Udoh is a doubt after being substituted just before halftime against Sheffield Wednesday, but Aaron Pierre came off the bench in that game and might make his first start of the season here on Saturday.

Matthew Pennington, a former Everton player, scored the winning goal against Sheffield Wednesday and will be looking to duplicate the feat when he returns to Merseyside.

Liverpool vs Shrewsbury Probable Playing XI:

Liverpool possible starting lineup:

Alisson; Bradley, Joe Gomez, Konate, Andy Robertson; Curtis Jones, Morton, James Milner; Gordon, Roberto Firmino, Minamino

Shrewsbury Town possible starting lineup:

Marosi; Pennington, Ebanks-Landell, Aaron Pierre; Bennett, Vela, David Davis, Leahy; Whalley; Ryan Bowman, Bloxham

Liverpool vs Shrewsbury Betting Predictions:

Match Betting: Liverpool win (1.22)

Draw (7.00)

Shrewsbury win (11.00)

The One-Liner Explainer:

Even though it is unclear how widespread Liverpool’s COVID pandemic is and which players have been infected, an in-form Shrewsbury team may never have a better opportunity to earn their first-ever victory at Anfield than they have this weekend. Despite this, we still anticipate Liverpool to advance to the fourth round of the Champions League with remarkable ease. It seems unlikely that the visitors will score many goals, and even a second-string Liverpool team should be able to defeat League One opponents.
