Jurgen Klopp must juggle his squad once more as Liverpool battle a tough fixture list and a growing line of injury complains.

James Milner suffered an injury in the 1-1 draw with Brighton this weekend, joining an extensive group of team-mates on the sidelines, with the midfield now joining the defensive line in looking perilously thin.

The Reds need a point in their Champions League group stage game against Ajax on Tuesday to assure themselves of a last-16 spot.
