Liverpool will play their final match before the international break on Saturday, when they host Watford in the Premier League.
It will be just one of four league fixtures to take place this weekend, as a number of teams will be involved in the FA Cup instead.
The Hornets were well-beaten by Arsenal on the previous matchday but had won two in a row before that, and they held the Reds to a draw in their first meeting this season.
According to WhoScored.com, Nathaniel Clyne is Liverpool’s only absentee, as Jordan Henderson is expected to return to the starting XI.
The team has been in fine form of late―despite the defeat against Manchester United―and the number of players called up to the England national team reflects that, per James Pearce of the Liverpool Echo:
Watford don’t have such luxuries, per WhoScored. A total of eight players are expected to miss out, including Nathaniel Chalobah, Tom Cleverley and Gerard Deulofeu.
Liverpool have good health and form on their side, with just one defeat in all competitions since the start of February: last Saturday’s 2-1 loss at Manchester United.
The Reds played well in that contest but ran into an excellent David De Gea and solid tactics that negated some of their biggest strengths.
Liverpool will welcome Watford to Anfield on Saturday looking to take advantage of a Premier League break for their rivals and cement a top-four standing.
With others either taking in an enforced rest or in FA Cup action, the Reds could move back into third spot by offering a positive response to a disappointing defeat at Manchester United last time out.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are unbeaten at Anfield in top-flight competition this season and have been full of goals when on top of their game.
Nathaniel Clyne is the only player set to be absent for Liverpool, with the full-back not yet ready for a first-team return following a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

Adam Lallana missed training in midweek to cast doubt over his involvement, but Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum will be pushing for recalls after making the bench at Old Trafford.
Watford have 10 players currently unavailable for a variety of reasons, leaving Gracia facing something of a selection poser with limited options.
Among those currently nursing knocks are Gerard Deulofeu, Tom Cleverley, Younes Kaboul, Nathaniel Chalobah and Jerome Sinclair, while goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes was dropped from the matchday squad for a 3-0 defeat at Arsenal.
All three were on target the last time Liverpool faced Watford, with a thrilling 3-3 draw played out at Vicarage Road on the opening weekend.
The Hornets have changed manager since then, but are perched inside the top-half of the table and will be hoping to end the season with a flourish.
There is still work for them to do as despite being sat 10th at present, they are only nine points clear of the relegation zone.
Liverpool have never lost back-to-back Premier League fixtures with Klopp at the helm, and will be determined to preserve that record on Saturday.
The battle for Champions League qualification is heating up, with Chelsea only four points back on the Reds and Arsenal clinging to the hope that a 12-point gap can be bridged.
Victory over Watford would put Liverpool back in the driving seat with only seven games to come and leave the chasing pack playing catch-up.
The Reds’ home record – with Manchester City the only other side to have avoided defeat in front of their own supporters – suggests that a positive response will be offered to defeat against arch-rivals Manchester United.
In Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, Klopp boasts one of the most formidable attacking units in Europe and will be looking to them for inspiration once again.
