The striker also scored his 200th goal in all competitions for the Manchester club as they defeated Chelsea in the Community Shield in August.

Eden Hazard is expected to start with a view to playing around 50 minutes after recent back trouble.

The Reds are now third, level on points with second placed Chelsea and just two points behind leaders Manchester City, with all three sides still unbeaten.

Morata had a hard start to the season under new manager Sarri but the 26-year-old striker has excelled in Eden Hazard's absence, scoring five goals in his last seven appearances for the Blues.

"I watched the game and Liverpool struggled a lot", Mateo Kovacic said.

"We are trying to evolve as a team, trying to play slightly differently and using less energy than we did during games a year ago".

The forward moved to Anfield from Hoffenheim in the summer of 2015 during Brendan Rodgers' reign but has emerged as one of the Merseysiders' most important players under Klopp. We can not drop points, we need to work hard, keep improving and let's see on that day if we have the chance to do it.

Jamie Carragher believes that Man City are the best side in the Premier League, but he isn't ruling out Liverpool's chances of winning the title this season.

However, Morata seems to have found a new lease of life under Maurizio Sarri, scoring a brace against Crystal Palace on Sunday to take his season's tally to six.

Chelsea's fringe players will get an opportunity to shine once again on Thursday night, which will do wonders in terms of keeping heads high within the camp. "He's played three games in a row and sometimes it's better to actually rest than always play".

This is where we realize just how good a result it was for Liverpool that their two main group rivals drew, failing to capitalize on Red Star Belgrade's shock victory.

David Silva slammed home their third from Sane's flick-on after 18 minutes but Danny Ings did pull one back from the spot after Ederson brought him down in the area.
