Liverpool are likely to face the oldest player to feature in the Premier League this season when they host Crystal Palace at Anfield on Saturday.
39-year-old goalkeeper Julian Speroni is expected to start for the Eagles as they look to stop the Reds from restoring their seven point lead at the top of the table.
The veteran’s last appearance for Palace arrived in the 3-2 league defeat to Arsenal back in December 2017, which marked one of just 13 outings across all competitions that season.
He is now set to be plunged into the deep end in light of recent injuries to both Vicente Guaita and Wayne Hennessey.
Palace are meanwhile working on a loan deal for 21-year-old Sao Paulo shot-stopper Lucas Perri, according to the Evening Standard.
Speroni will be tasked with thwarting an in-form Mohamed Salah, who boasts 17 goals across all competitions so far this season as well as seven goals and three assists in his last seven league games.
Liverpool are currently unbeaten in 31 league games at Anfield, although face a side responsible for earning a shock win over Manchester City at the Etihad last month.
The Reds enter the contest with injury problems of their own following the news that Trent Alexander-Arnold will be sidelined for up to a month with a knee issue.
Jurgen Klopp also remains without Joe Gomez, who is nearing his recovery from a fractured leg sustained in the 3-1 win over Burnley towards the beginning of December.
