Liverpool’s defence will be bolstered by the return of Nathaniel Phillips, who was ruled out of the Chelsea tie with a knock, with Ben Davies also available for selection against Fulham.
The latter is yet to star for his new side since signing on deadline day.
Klopp on Phillips/Davies: "Nat will be ready and Ben as well.
"It's not easy in our situation, we brought him in and he;s had to adapt. He's a really good player. We have to see which decision we make for it. Looks like everyone could be available for Sunday but Ozan."

Jurgen Klopp has since explained that the former Preston North End defender’s lack of minutes for the Reds is a matter of adaptation.
With Liverpool’s midfield against Chelsea proving to be unbalanced yet again, however, circumstances may force the German to hand Davies’ his long-awaited first start in order to allow Fabinho to return to his favoured role.

Considering the dire nature of our recent home form, something reasonably drastic needs to change against Scott Parker’s side; bringing in Naby Keita and our No.3 could provide the shakeup we need to get a first home victory since December.
At this point in the season, Klopp arguably has to start taking risks that we may not necessarily have been comfortable with if the side was closer to Manchester City in the table.
