De Zerbi said: “He is unavailable.

“We are, of course, waiting for him because he is a big loss for him. Everybody else is okay.”

The Italian coach has been working with his new players over the international break following Graham Potter’s departure to Chelsea.

And he could welcome Tariq Lamptey and Adam Lallana back into the squad for the trip to Anfield.

Lamptey picked up a slight knock while on international duty while Lallana, who stepped in to take some training sessions between Potter’s exit and De Zerbi’s arrival, is back training after a calf injury.
