Salah celebrated his brother’s wedding during the break. He has since tested positive at least twice and is now self-isolating.
It is the latest blow in a seemingly continual avalanche of bad news for Jurgen Klopp, who already has Virgil van Dijk, Thiago Alcantara and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain sidelined and saw Trent Alexander-Arnold limp out of the 1-1 draw with Manchester City before the break.
Joe Gomez broke down in training with England, while Andy Robertson has been nursing a calf injury. There are also strong doubts over Fabinho, Jordan Henderson and youngster Rhys Williams.
As such Nathaniel Phillips and Joel Matip should make up the centre-back partnership, with Curtis Jones taking up a place in midfield.
Liverpool predicted lineup (4-3-3): Alisson; Milner, Phillips, Matip, Robertson; Keita, Wijnaldum, Jones; Jota, Firmino, Mane
