Despite injuries, Liverpool field a strong line-up in the first leg of their EFL Cup semi-final clash against Fulham at Anfield.
Conor Bradley starts his first game for Liverpool this season due to the injury of Trent Alexander-Arnold while Virgil van Dijk returns to the starting line-up following a bout with illness.
Ryan Gravenberch starts ahead of the injured Dominik Szoboszlai while Harvey Elliott continues playing on the wing due to the absence of Mohamed Salah who is competing in the Africa Cup of Nations.

LFC Globe Verdict
Liverpool's growing injury list is certainly startling but Jürgen Klopp has still been able to field a strong line-up in the semi-final clash.
Despite a bench consisting of Alisson Becker, Darwin Núñez, and Cody Gakpo, the boss may need to call on some of his youngsters during the game.
I still back Liverpool to come out victorious on Wednesday night (January 10) in a 2-0 win with Luis Díaz and Diogo Jota both scoring.
