Premier League leaders Liverpool might be without two of their best players for the league clash with London club Crystal Palace.

Liverpool travel to take on the Eagles in a week 13 league game billed for Selhurst Park on Saturday evening and they might be without Mohamed Salah and Andy Robertson.

According to Sky Sports, Salah and Robertson are struggling to recover from respective ankle problems ahead of the game against the Eagles.

Mohamed Salah and Andy Robertson are key players for Liverpool though they have adequate replacements for them if they will be unable to play the game.

Veteran Liverpool midfielder James Milner could slot in at left-back in the absence of Scotland international skipper Andy Robertson, while Belgian national team striker Divock Origi is likely to replace Mohamed Salah in the Liverpool XI ahead of the Crystal Palace match.

Andy Robertson missed the international break with Scotland as a result of the injury as his country rounded up their qualifying campaign for Euro 2020.

The same applies to Mohamed Salah who missed the 2021 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers for North African side Egypt.

Liverpool would be hoping to maintain their eight-point lead at the top of the Premier League table with an away victory over Crystal Palace.
