Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is not prepared to take a risk with the Premier League's leading scorer Mohamed Salah in the Merseyside derby.

The Egypt international, whose haul of 38 this season includes 29 in the league, was forced off with a groin injury during Wednesday's 3-0 Champions League quarter-final victory over Manchester City.

Klopp has a raft of injuries to contend with ahead of the short trip to Everton for the 231st Merseyside derby.

Midfielders Emre Can (back), Adam Lallana (hamstring) and Ben Woodburn are all out.

Of his injured defenders, Ragnar Klavan, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez, only Klavan has any chance of making the squad.
