Summer signing Karius has been on the bench for the last two matches after returning to training following a hand injury sustained towards the end of the pre-season campaign.

The German looks likely to make his first start for the Reds when they travel to the iPro Stadium on Tuesday for the third-round clash with Derby, while boss Jurgen Klopp is expected to make a few changes elsewhere,

Can is fit again after recovering from an ankle injury sustained in the second-round tie with Burton while Roberto Firmino could also feature having missed Friday’s win at Chelsea.

With no European campaign, Klopp looks set to name a strong side for the clash, with Divock Origi indicating he could lead the line having been used mainly as a substitute this season.

Joe Gomez and Sheyi Ojo remain sidelined for the Reds.
