“They (Mo Salah and Darwin Nunez) couldn’t have played tonight,” Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp said. “Everyone who can play tonight will be there. From here we will see who will be back (Sunday’s Carabao Cup final against Chelsea) but that is not important at the moment.”

He added: “We are completely different since they performed well last time (against Luton) and we should have scored goals. “I’ve seen a lot of Luton games and the progress they’ve made is crazy and deserve great respect.

“Luton started very pragmatically (at the start of the season) and have developed football-wise since then and it’s really good work what Rob (Edwards) is doing there. Will it be a test for us? Yes.

“It’s about coming in, causing problems and winning the game.”

Elsewhere in the northwestSir Jim Ratcliffe has outlined his plans to return Manchester United to its former glory by knocking Liverpool and Manchester City “off their perch” within the next three years.

Less than 24 hours after taking control of football operations at Old Trafford, the 71-year-old billionaire admitted United needed to learn clear lessons from the way their rivals have behaved in the 11 years since Sir Alex Ferguson took over had come far forward on the departure.

In a wide-ranging interview, Ratcliffe refused to directly address Erik ten Hag’s future. However, he said the failure of several managers since 2013 suggested that, above all, the club’s structure and atmosphere needed to be improved.

“We can learn a lot from our noisy neighbor and the other neighbor,” Ratcliffe said. “Ultimately, they are the enemy. There’s nothing I’d rather do than knock both of them out of their place.

“But they have been doing well for some time and there are things we can learn from both of them. They have sensible organizations, great people within the organizations, a good, motivated and elite environment in which they work. I have a lot of respect for them, but they are still the enemy.”
