Rangers suspension woe, fresh injury blow, Liverpool selection dilemma - team news and probable starting XIs

Liverpool forwards Diogo Jota and Darwin Nunez are both pushing for inclusion in the starting line-up at home to Rangers in the Champions League.

Both were left on the bench for Saturday’s draw with Brighton after their international commitments along with Luis Diaz, who is expected to start.

Defenders Ibrahima Konate and Calvin Ramsay, neither of whom have played this season, both trained on Monday while Joe Gomez could come in at right-back to give the under-pressure Trent Alexander-Arnold a break.
