Liverpool will head to Elland Road for the Premier League game on Sunday afternoon to face Leeds United.

According to Official website of the association, The Reds will have to do without Brazilian striker Roberto Firmino in this game.

The Brazilian sustained a thigh injury ahead of the international break against Chelsea and has not yet fully recovered.

However, Liverpool are bolstered by the news that Alisson Becker and Fabinho are now allowed to play on Elland Road. The duo have not represented their country in the last few games.

According to Fifa rules, players who have not been released for the most recent qualifiers for the South American World Cup should be banned from the game for five days.

However, the Board of Directors confirmed their availability in a statement on Saturday morningafter the Brazilian Football Association’s complaint was withdrawn.

Another player who is sure to miss the duel is Takumi Minamino. The 26-year-old suffered a blow while playing for Japan.

However, veteran midfielder James Milner has returned to training and could return to battle against his former club.

Milner, who has a weekly wage of £ 140,000 at the club, has not played since Liverpool’s 3-0 win over Norwich City.

Virgil van Dijk, who was seen limping during the game after the Netherlands game on Tuesday, is fully fit. Naby Keita is also available after safely returning to the club from Guinea.
