Liverpool will take a full-strength squad to the Club World Cup later this month, including Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.

The tournament clashes with a League Cup quarter-final at Aston Villa, which is being played 24 hours before their opening match in Doha, and has forced Jurgen Klopp to split his squads.

However, under-23's coach Neil Critchley will be in the dug out for the League Cup tie, meaning Klopp's priorities lie in the Middle East.

The 23-man squad they have named for the Club World Cup is missing only Joel Matip and Fabinho, both currently out injured, of its senior players and also includes youngsters Rhian Brewster, Curtis Jones, Harvey Elliott and Neco Williams as well as fourth-choice goalkeeper Andy Lonergan.

Ill or injured players can be replaced up to 24 hours before Liverpool's first match on December 18.

Squad: Alisson, Adrian, Lonergan, Alexander-Arnold, Williams, Van Dijk, Lovren, Robertson, Gomez, Milner, Keita, Wijnaldum, Henderson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lallana, Firmino, Mane, Salah, Shaqiri, Brewster, Origi, Jones, Elliott.
