Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has a selection dilemma ahead of the visit of Stoke on Saturday with only three fit senior midfielders available.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was the latest to have his season ended after he sustained knee ligament damage in the midweek win over Roma. That could lead to an opening for youngster Ben Woodburn to feature alongside Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Georginio Wijnaldum.

Liverpool provisional squad: Karius, Gomez, Klavan, Van Dijk, Moreno, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Woodburn, Salah, Ings, Firmino, Mignolet, Alexander-Arnold, Clyne, Lovren, Robertson, Milner, Jones, Mane, Solanke.

Stoke are set to be without right-back Glen Johnson for Saturday's trip to Liverpool.

The defender suffered a recurrence of his groin injury during last weekend's draw with Burnley so Kurt Zouma is likely to deputise. Forward Eric Choupo-Moting (groin) and defender Kostas Stafylidis (fractured rib) remain on the sidelines.

Stoke provisional squad: Butland, Grant, Shawcross, Zouma, Martins Indi, Wimmer, Cameron, Bauer, Pieters, Adam, Fletcher, Allen, Ndiaye, Ireland, Shaqiri, Sobhi, Crouch, Campbell, Diouf, Sorensen.

Ben Mee and Scott Arfield will again be missing for Burnley when they take on Brighton at Turf Moor.

Boss Sean Dyche has confirmed on-loan Tottenham winger Georges-Kevin N'Koudou (hamstring) will be back available but Steven Defour and Robbie Brady (both knee) are out.

Burnley provisional squad: Pope, Lowton, Tarkowski, Long, Ward, Lennon, Cork, Westwood, Gudmundsson, N'Koudou, Hendrick, Barnes, Wood, Vokes, Heaton, Marney, Bardsley, Taylor, Wells.

Brighton boss Chris Hughton reported has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the Premier League trip to Burnley.

Midfielder Davy Propper remains unavailable as he serves out a three-match suspension following his red card against Huddersfield on April 7.

Brighton provisional squad: Ryan, Bruno, Bong, Dunk, Duffy, Stephens, Kayal, Knockaert, Gross, Izquierdo, Murray, Krul, Goldson, Schelotto, March, Baldock, Ulloa, Locadia.

Crystal Palace have no fresh injury concerns for Saturday's Premier League clash with Leicester.

Kasper Schmeichel and Shinji Okazaki have not recovered in time for Leicester's trip to Crystal Palace and both players remain out injured.

Both players suffered ankle injuries at Burnley on April 14 and missed the goalless stalemate with Southampton last week. Ben Hamer is likely to retain his place in goal in Schmeichel's continued absence.
