A select round-up of the latest news relating to Liverpool…
In early team news, the BBC reports that Adam Lallana is unavailable with a calf injury while Kolo Toure is now on Africa Cup of Nations duty.
Liverpool are also without Jon Flanagan, Joe Allen, Glen Johnson and Brad Jones for a match they will be desperate to win having dropped two points against Leicester City in their last league encounter prior to the FA Cup third round weekend.
Manquillo has played 17 times for Liverpool since arriving on loan from Atletico Madrid, and he told LFC.com, “In Spain, I never played (a system) like that.
“But here we’ve been working hard in training to get used to the new system and for now it’s going quite well.”
Manquillo will be hoping to add to his appearance tally this afternoon, helping Liverpool to a victory in the process.
