Liverpool could end the weekend in sixth place in the Premier League table if they beat Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
The Reds returned to Anfield after defeating Leeds United 6-1 on Monday, rediscovering their magic in a performance Jurgen Klopp described as the best of the season.
Here’s who he could pick to face relegation-threatened Forest, who have won just once in their travels all season.
GK: Alisson – With the team needing to rebuild, Liverpool can rest easy knowing they won’t have to reinforce their goalkeepers.
Right-back: Trent Alexander-Arnold – He excelled in a tip-toe role against a hopeless Leeds side on Monday and is likely to cause Forest all sorts of similar trouble.
CB: Ibrahima Konate – Wrong in consoling Leeds but overall he’s been one of Liverpool’s best defenders this season. However, it does not represent a particularly high bar for clarity.
CB: Virgil van Dijk – She turns 32 this summer… when did that happen?
Left-back: Andy Robertson – With Konstantine Hatzidakis back at work this weekend, it’s only fair that he meets Robo…Inside Hell in a Cell.

DM: Fabinho – Monday was the first time in months that Fabinho didn’t play like a traffic cone. growth.
CM: Jordan Henderson – Coverage of Alexander Arnold…why didn’t anyone think of this role for Henderson sooner?
Name: Curtis Jones – One of Liverpool’s leading stars at Leeds and he should be given plenty of chances to impress between now and the summer, if anything as Harvey Elliott’s trial hasn’t been a success.
Right wing: Mohamed Salah – Only Erling Haaland, Harry Kane and Ivan Toni have scored more Premier League goals than the Egyptians this season.
CF: Cody Jacobo – Adapting to his new role as a centre-forward, he should have plenty of opportunities to enjoy a weak defense in the woods.
LW: Diogo Jota – Back between goals again thanks in part to his aphorism by Cristiano Ronaldo.
