Joel Matip could be reintroduced but as it could be a lot to ask given the Cameroonian is only just back from injury, Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez may be at the heart of the back four once more.

Now the international break is over, the reality of club football returns - and with it a sobering reminder of Liverpool’s last fixture and performance: As things stand in the Premier League, only newly promoted West Bromwich Albion have conceded more goals than the Reds.

This will be Liverpool’s biggest derby test in some time, and if they want to win - let alone keep the decade-long unbeaten streak going - then stopping Calvert-Lewin is the biggest issue at hand.

That’s the extent of the damage done by the Aston Villa game, a once-in-a-generation result (you’d hope) which must serve to focus minds, sharpen determination and tidy up the woeful defensive line from that particular 90 minutes.

The game takes place on 17 October, 2020.

The alternative to work on in tandem is to stop the supply line - that’s the job of the rest of the team, to help out Gomez and Van Dijk and defend from the front.
