On the eve of the first leg at An­field, Joel Matip was ruled out for the re­main­der of the sea­son with a thigh in­jury — which is likely to re­quire surgery — and, with fel­low cen­tre-back Rag­nar Kla­van also side­lined and Joe Gomez a few weeks from re­cov­er­ing from an an­kle in­jury op­tions at the back are lim­ited.
