Liverpool have a very thin squad and with Jurgen Klopp very rarely looking to rotate, this might come back to bite them in January, with two of their front three off to Cameroon. Klopp will be without the best player in the Premier League this season, Mohammed Salah, and his partner on the opposite wing, Sadio Mane. This will leave Liverpool with three first team forwards: Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino and Divock Origi.
Salah and Mane have scored 28/52 Premier League goals for Liverpool this season, and with Manchester City already 11 points ahead, the next couple of games could make or break Liverpool’s title challenge. They will also be without midfielder Naby Keita, who this season has contributed more, leaving them with five first team midfielders for a hectic January period for Liverpool.
Expected league position by end of AFCON: 3rd
