Liverpool have one more game before the Carabao Cup Final on Sunday, as Luton Town head to Anfield on Wednesday night.

The Reds will be looking for another three points to extend their lead at the top of the table and secure a first-ever Premier League victory over Luton, having drawn one-all at Kenilworth Road earlier in the season.

Unfortunately, the game is not being shown live in the UK.

Usually, games are moved to mid-week slots for TV coverage, but on this occasion, the match is being played on Wednesday because of Liverpool's involvement in the Carabao Cup Final this weekend, as well as upcoming European matches in midweek.

Team News

Liverpool:
Jurgen Klopp has nine first-team players unavailable for the Luton game, with Diogo Jota, Curtis Jones, and Darwin Nunez the latest players to pick up an injury.  There has been speculation that Mo Salah may have also suffered a recurrence of his muscle problem, although this is unconfirmed.

More news will be available later today or tomorrow once Jota, Jones, and Alisson have undergone further tests and scans.  The pre-match press conference takes place tomorrow afternoon when Klopp will hopefully provide more positive news.

Elliott, Gakpo, and Gravenberch will likely all get game time on Wednesday, as well as Joe Gomez, as Klopp looks to rotate and protect his players (if possible).  Conor Bradley may be rested ahead of the Cup Final.

Luton:
Luton has far fewer injury concerns, although Thomas Lockyer, Marvelous Nakamba, Mads Anderson, Daiki Hashioka, and Elijah Adebayo are all absent.

Predicted Liverpool Lineup

Jurgen Klopp will stick with his preferred 4-3-3 formation.

Kelleher, Gomez, Van Dijk (C), Quansah, Robertson, Endo, Gravenberch, Mac Allister, Elliott, Gakpo, Diaz

LFC - Back On Our Perch Score Prediction

Despite all our injuries, Liverpool should have enough to overcome Luton at Anfield.  The team will need to start well, put Luton under pressure, and get the crowd involved.  I can see Luton scoring from a corner or on the break, but the Reds will have too much firepower and should win 3 - 1.
