Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed he will not take charge of his side's FA Cup fourth-round replay against Shrewsbury Town, with Neil Critchley to lead a young squad.

Jason Cummings came off the bench to score twice on Sunday, earning a 2-2 draw that means League One side Shrewsbury will play a lucrative replay at Anfield early next month.

That game is set to fall within the Premier League's inaugural mid-season break, with Klopp having previously promised his senior stars they would get time off to recover ahead of the run-in.

That means Critchley will be in the dugout, the Liverpool Under-23s coach having overseen an EFL Cup exit to Aston Villa earlier in the season when the Reds were on Club World Cup duty.

"Look, our situation is the following: we have known that for a couple of weeks it is like this," Klopp told a news conference.

"Actually, we knew it a bit longer because it was always clear when we came through into the next round it would be like this. 

"In April 2019, we got a letter from the Premier League where they asked us to respect the winter break, not to organise international friendlies and not to organise competitive games in respect of it. 

"I have said to the boys already, two weeks ago, that we will have a winter break, so it means we will not be there – it will be the kids who play that game because they cannot deal with us like nobody cares about it. 

"I know it is not very popular, but that’s the way I see it and, how I said, the Premier League asked us to respect the winter break and that’s what we do it. If then the FA [Football Association] do not respect it then we cannot change.

"But we [the first-team squad and staff] will not be there."

Klopp explained he plans to give his team a week's rest, during which they will undergo individual training regimes away from Melwood in order to stay fit.

He added: "That's what the winter break is about and then another competition tells us it's not that important, so we had to make these decisions before because the boys have family.

"And the international players like Jordan Henderson, Virgil van Dijk, Gini Wijnaldum, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Mo Salah, Sadio Mane, all these guys they have never [time] off so this is the week. 

"I said in the moment it was clear there would be a winter break months ago, before I knew the FA Cup could come in between, then we would respect it and we do."

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp accepted Shrewsbury Town earned a lucrative FA Cup fourth-round replay at Anfield after coming from behind to earn a 2-2 draw against the world champions.

Curtis Jones scored for the second round in a row to put the Reds in front on Sunday and their lead was doubled immediately after half-time when Donald Love scored a comical own goal.

League One side Shrewsbury would not give up, however, with substitute Jason Cummings scoring twice, his first goal coming from the penalty spot, to send the home fans into raptures.

Klopp named a young side, as he did in the third round against Merseyside rivals Everton, though Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip started at the back with Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino late arrivals off the bench as the Reds sought to avoid a replay.

And Klopp had no arguments with the result as Shrewsbury pulled off one of the biggest shocks of this season's FA Cup.

"We sent today so many invitations to the opponent it was always difficult to win the game," he told BBC Sport.

"I don’t think we have the time to say all the things which were not right today. 

"We scored a really wonderful goal which was, not the only football moment but it was a football moment.

"Apart from that, Adrian had absolutely too much to do, he was brilliant. The counter-attacks they had when we lost the ball. That’s how it is. 

"Big present directly after half-time, 2-0, it just didn’t look like on the pitch that we were 2-0 up, it looked like we were 2-1 down. 

"Congratulations to Shrewsbury, well deserved, it was the minimum they deserved today."

Shrewsbury manager Sam Ricketts felt his side could have pushed for a winner until Klopp sent on Firmino and Salah in the closing stages.

"For five, 10 minutes I was thinking, 'Let's go and get this'," Ricketts told BBC Sport. 

"As the game goes on and Liverpool bring on Firmino and Salah, it changed a little bit, alarm bells were ringing. 

"I said to the lads, 'You could have won it, but you all wanted to go to Anfield, didn’t you!'"

Jason Cummings scored a second-half double off the bench as Shrewsbury Town came from behind to earn a surprise 2-2 draw against Liverpool in the FA Cup fourth round on Sunday.

Within 15 minutes of replacing Callum Lang on the hour mark, Cummings converted from the penalty spot and guided a cool finish past Adrian to earn League One side Shrewsbury a replay against the Premier League leaders at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp made 11 changes to his team and saw them move 2-0 up when Donald Love followed up Curtis Jones' opener with a comical own goal.

Klopp responded to Cummings' brace by calling for Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino from the bench, but Liverpool were unable to salvage a victory despite some huge late chances and now have another fixture to add to their busy schedule.

Jurgen Klopp has hailed Xherdan Shaqiri's "unbelievable" physique and revealed Liverpool are still seeking a solution to the midfielder's persistent injury problems.

Switzerland international Shaqiri has made just three starts in all competitions for Liverpool this season due to calf and hamstring issues.

The 28-year-old has been linked with a January move to Serie A side Roma and LaLiga club Sevilla, but Klopp last week ruled out the prospect of a mid-season exit.

And the Reds boss is working hard to ensure Shaqiri can still play a big part in the remaining months of the 2019-20 campaign.

"It is not cool, absolutely not cool but maybe there are different reasons," he said of Shaqiri's injury record this season.

"He is a very special player in different departments. His physique is different to all others I ever saw, his muscles are unbelievable.

"So far it [his injury] was never big but it was always enough to get him out, I can imagine that is frustrating, it is frustrating for him and not good for us.

"We work on that. We don't want to bring in a situation where it constantly happens, but so far we didn't find 100 per cent the solution for it, so we have to see."

Shaqiri is likely to sit out Sunday's FA Cup fourth-round trip to Shrewsbury Town as Liverpool continue their quest for a domestic and European treble.

Klopp's men are 16 points clear at the top of the Premier League with a game in hand and into the last 16 of the Champions League, but the German is expecting a difficult test at League One side Shrewsbury this weekend.

"Of course, it is tough - that's the really good thing about a cup competition," he said.

"Shrewsbury qualified in a difficult game, having to play twice against Bristol City, and have been looking forward to this game since they qualified, and they knew before that we would be the opponent.

"The lower-league team playing at their home ground is an advantage. Hopefully the pitch will be okay - I have no idea so far about any circumstances.

"That is proper cup and I like that. Is it a test? Yes, maybe, but it is not like I test the players, it is a test in general as you play against a team who fights the fight of their life and we have to show how important the next round is to us."

Virgil van Dijk insisted Liverpool did not feel unbeatable despite their incredible run in the Premier League.

Liverpool secured their 22nd win in 23 league games this season by edging Wolves 2-1 in a tight contest on Thursday.

But Van Dijk warned his side there was still work to do despite their 16-point advantage atop the table.

"You never feel unbeatable – it is not a feeling that we have," the star centre-back told UK media.

"Anything can happen. There were moments against Wolves when things could have been different.

"They could have scored a second. We always feel we have to keep working hard.

"We just try to keep improving. Things are going good at the moment and everyone is in a good situation."

Van Dijk is enjoying another stellar campaign for Liverpool, with his partnership alongside Joe Gomez in the centre of defence a key.

Gomez was involved in an altercation with England team-mate Raheem Sterling in November and Van Dijk said he spoke to the 22-year-old to offer his support.

"Of course I talked with Joe and tried to help," Van Dijk said.

"That incident wasn't his fault. I spoke to him about it at the time and he came through that.

"I've been so impressed by Joe. We all saw last season, before he got injured, how good he is and how good he can be.

"He's someone I get on very well with — on and off the pitch. That helps, of course."

Liverpool visit Shrewsbury Town in the FA Cup fourth round on Sunday.

Jurgen Klopp has laughed off the suggestion Liverpool are now certain to win the Premier League following Thursday's triumph over Wolves.

A late strike from Roberto Firmino secured a 2-1 win at Molineux, giving the Reds 22 victories from 23 league games this season and stretching their lead at the top to 16 points with a game in hand.

Liverpool have now gone 40 league games without defeat and appear firmly on course to end their 30-year wait for a top-flight title.

Klopp, however, remains insistent his team cannot take anything for granted in the final months of the season.

When asked about Liverpool becoming the so-called 'Inevitables', he told reporters on Friday: "In four and a half years in this country, I think I've never heard that word before. I have no clue what you're talking about.

"We couldn't care less about these sorts of things. I think, in this moment, we are not even mathematically qualified for the Champions League next year, so the only thing you can do is focus on the next football game.

"That's Shrewsbury [Town, in the FA Cup], then West Ham, then Southampton, then we have a week off, and then we start again. That's the plan. I don't know another plan.

"So, whatever you say about us... if it's positive, thank you very much; if it's negative, I don't care. That's it, pretty much. I cannot change the situation. I've never heard of anything being decided before it's decided, so why should we think about these kinds of things?

"The game [against Wolves] is a very, very good example for our kind of situation. It was never easy, was never going to be easy, and we just have to fight as much as we can. That's what the boys did, that's why we won the game, so that's the only thing we can do and it's the only thing we're focused on."

Liverpool face Shrewsbury away in the FA Cup fourth round on Sunday before a league trip to West Ham next Wednesday.

They then host Southampton on February 1 and are then due to have two weeks off before travelling to Norwich City.

Jurgen Klopp remains unsure about the severity of Sadio Mane's injury but hailed Takumi Minamino for his performance when replacing the Senegal star against Wolves.

Mane went off in the first half of Thursday's 2-1 victory at Molineux with a hamstring problem, with Japan international Minamino thrown on for his first experience of Premier League football.

Klopp was delighted with the 25-year-old's efforts in a battling win, secured by Jordan Henderson's header and Roberto Firmino's late strike, which came after a Raul Jimenez equaliser.

The Liverpool boss had no update on Mane's condition when speaking to reporters on Friday ahead of the FA Cup fourth-round trip to Shrewsbury Town, but he appeared confident Minamino could fill in where required.

"I think we have to think about exactly what we do now because he played yesterday much longer than we thought," Klopp said. "It was a big step for him – come on. A game like this for nobody on the pitch was a game where you have to shine and make your best game ever and stuff like this, as a new player, in this kind of a battle.

"Showing up like he did, not with his skills in different departments of the game, but with his character, mentality – he was fighting like crazy, closed gaps, was involved in a lot of situations – it was just a super start.

"It was not 100 per cent his position, he can play there, but for yesterday it was exactly what he had to do. That was much more important than the next game. We'll have to see how he reacted to the intensity of that game, but each game helps, for sure."

Klopp has been delighted with Minamino's application since he arrived in a reported £7.25million deal from Salzburg.

"He's exactly the player we expected to get," he said. "Super player, super boy, really. You saw so many things of his ability last night. As footballers, if you only play the days when everything is clicking, when you're scoring two goals, assisting two more… this, as I said, was a proper fight.

"He's completely ready for that and for him, still in a new environment, a new team, he's really adapting and from a tactical point of view it was an outstanding game. In training, we see more of the finishing stuff, creating stuff… he's just the player we wanted."

Klopp intends to rotate his team much as he did for the third-round win over Everton, with Adrian set to start in goal, but he fears the game will come too soon for Xherdan Shaqiri and James Milner to be involved.

"Adrian will be in goal, if he can," Klopp said. "For Shaq and Millie, it's too early; Naby [Keita], we'll have to see. My information is he will be part of training today. It's minus-two to the game so we have to see if he can be part of the session.

"We have a team, we'll have a team with fresh legs, we have players coming back or came back from injury, so it makes sense to play them because they're pretty good, and we want to go through.

"It's a tough place to go, it's how it always is in cup competitions."

Pep Guardiola does not appear overly concerned by the prospect of Liverpool shattering Manchester City's Premier League benchmarks, saying: "Records are there to be broken".

City have won the Premier League under Guardiola in the past two seasons and, while they were pushed all the way by Liverpool last term, the 2017-18 success was similar to the Reds' current tilt in its dominance.

Guardiola's side finished on a record 100 points, yet Liverpool have dropped only two points all season and look on course to surpass that total, while also troubling Arsenal's 49-match unbeaten run from 2003-04.

Asked about the prospect of Liverpool claiming such records ahead of City's FA Cup tie against Fulham, Guardiola said: "Yes, it can happen.

"Records are there to be broken. We broke it when someone said we couldn't, and sooner or later it will be broken again. History speaks clearly about that.

"To beat Liverpool? It is not easy. They have found a way to win games."

City welcomed back Aymeric Laporte for the first time since his August knee injury in midweek, playing 78 minutes against Sheffield United in the Premier League.

Guardiola is delighted to be able to call on his star centre-back once more but again stated Laporte will not fix all of City's problems.

"He was good [against Sheffield United]," Guardiola said. "He played a little bit more than 70 minutes for the first game.

"He played well, but he is not going to solve all the problems that we have. He is one more player that we have, and if we believe can use him, we will use him.

"He's a guy who helps us to do our build-up easier, and when that happens, we lose less balls, we concede fewer counter-attacks and that's why we are more stable. Basically it is that.

"He is a guy who is strong in the air, is fast, and has a special personality. His attributes help us to become a better team."

Guardiola, who said City would not be training abroad during the upcoming mid-season break, preferring to stay at home, confirmed winger Leroy Sane is now the club's only injury absence.

The return of Laporte would appear to see teenage defenders Eric Garcia and Taylor Harwood-Bellis moved further down the pecking order, but Guardiola does not anticipate either player going out on loan.

"It is impossible, Eric Garcia is not going to move," he said. "Harwood-Bellis, we didn't speak about that, but no. I think he is going to stay until the end of the season.

"Maybe we need him for the second team. I don't know if he has offers. If there came an offer from the Premier League, maybe we could consider it for his development as a player."

Manchester United have been fined £20,000 by the Football Association for failing to control their players during the 2-0 defeat to Premier League leaders Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.

Having gone ahead in the 14th minute through Virgil van Dijk's header, Liverpool thought they had a second when Roberto Firmino curled home soon after.

However, the goal was subsequently disallowed following a VAR check, with Van Dijk having been deemed to foul United goalkeeper David de Gea prior to Firmino's strike.

Referee Craig Pawson did not initially blow up for a foul, with United's players - including goalkeeper De Gea, who received a booking - gathering around the official to protest prior to the video review.

The FA has now taken action against United after finding them guilty of a breach of rule E20(a).

"Manchester United FC has been fined £20,000 after admitting a breach of FA Rule E20 and accepting the standard penalty," read a statement.

"The club failed to ensure its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the 26th minute of a Premier League fixture against Liverpool FC on 19 January 2020."

Jurgen Klopp revealed he forgot how big Liverpool's lead atop the Premier League was ahead of their win over Wolves on Thursday.

An 84th-minute goal from Roberto Firmino saw Liverpool edge Wolves 2-1, restoring their 16-point lead at the top.

But Klopp said his side's busy schedule meant he needed reminding just how big their advantage was in the lead up to the clash.

"When was the pressure higher on us, this year or last year? Human beings are like this. I don't think about it," the Liverpool manager told a news conference.

"I had to ask exactly how many points clear we are, that's the truth. I really forgot it in the week, with the number of games, I didn't think about it.

"I know we play Sunday against Shrewsbury and Wednesday West Ham and I know we play Saturday. That's three games in seven days, that's a lot.

"I know we lost Sadio Mane [to a hamstring injury], that's what I think about, that's the pressure I have. All the rest is not pressure.

"We want to win football games and when I arrived here a few years ago we wanted to win football games. That's the pressure [and] yes, I feel that. Apart from that, nothing, it's just football."

Liverpool were tested by Wolves, who drew level in the second half as Raul Jimenez cancelled out Jordan Henderson's eighth-minute opener.

But Firmino's late goal saw Liverpool to a 22nd win in 23 league games and Klopp lauded his side's response.

"We don't go for perfection, we go for a perfect reaction if possible, that's what we try to do, that we really fight back in difficult situations in the game," he said.

"That's what the boys did again and so, we won the game, which is really unbelievable."

Liverpool visit Shrewsbury Town in the FA Cup fourth round on Sunday.

Liverpool's march towards the Premier League title shows no sign of slowing down, as the Reds claimed a hard-fought 2-1 win over Wolves.

Manchester United are clinging to a top-six position after they slid to a 2-0 home defeat to Burnley, the latest in a string of wretched results this season that have sparked an angry reaction from supporters.

While United toil, neighbours Manchester City ground out a 1-0 win at Sheffield United that continued their resurgent league form, with a winning combination delivering the goal for Pep Guardiola's side.

Leicester City might have expected a challenge from the big clubs behind them by now, but the Foxes continue to sit pretty in third place, and a 4-1 win over West Ham continued to make them look immovable from the top four this season.

The midweek Opta data offers detailed insights into the stories behind those results, revealing a string of telling trends and match facts.

 

MANE INJURY DOES NOT DERAIL LIVERPOOL'S CHARGE

Liverpool lost Sadio Mane to injury during the first half in Thursday's clash with Wolves, yet Roberto Firmino struck late on to claim the win as the Reds became just the fifth side in English Football League history to go 40 straight matches unbeaten.

Jurgen Klopp's side have amassed 67 points from a possible 69 in the Premier League this season; this is at least five more than any side in English top-flight history has ever previously had after as many games of a campaign.

Raul Jimenez drew Wolves level after Jordan Henderson's opener, and the Mexican's header ended a run of 725 minutes without conceding a Premier League goal for Liverpool since Richarlison scored for Everton at Anfield in December.

Jimenez also became the third Premier League player to net 20+ goals in all competitions this season, after Sergio Aguero (21) and Raheem Sterling (20).

Since the start of last season, Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold has assisted 22 Premier League goals, at least five more than any other player, with 10 of those coming from dead balls, also a league-high.

Firmino, meanwhile, has scored six goals in his last eight games for Liverpool in all competitions, as many as he had in his previous 32 appearances for the club, and all of his 10 Premier League strikes this season have come away from home.

UNITED IN TURMOIL AS CLARETS PUT NEGATIVE SPIN ON OLE REIN

Manchester United may sit fifth, but in terms of points tallies Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's are closer to 14th-placed Newcastle than they are to fourth-placed Chelsea after 24 games.

The league standing is highly vulnerable, given Tottenham, Wolves and even Sheffield United are breathing down United's necks.

Wednesday's 2-0 defeat to Burnley means United now have a negative Premier League win-loss record since manager Solskjaer was given the job on a full-time basis in March.

They had impressed during his caretaker spell, but since Solskjaer went from being a stand-in to the chosen one, their record shows 11 wins and 12 defeats in the Premier League.

United's Old Trafford setback followed their 2-0 loss to Liverpool at Anfield, meaning they have suffered back-to-back league defeats for the second time under their Norwegian boss.

Burnley looked to be in freefall just days ago and relegation was becoming a serious concern, but wins over United and Leicester City have lifted them to 30 points - just four adrift of the Red Devils.

PASSPORTS AT THE READY, LEICESTER LOOK BOOKED IN FOR CHAMPIONS LEAGUE RETURN

Catch them if you can! Leicester City had a wobble with defeats to Southampton and Burnley, but Brendan Rodgers' men now sit 14 points clear of fifth place and surely their destiny is a second season in the Champions League.

In the absence of anything approaching a charge from teams outside the top four, it would take a spectacular collapse for the Foxes to miss out, with a 4-1 win over West Ham on Wednesday emphasising their quality.

Leicester have racked up eight wins in 12 Premier League home games so far, their best record at this stage of a season, and the 52 goals they have banged in amounts to their most in the top flight from their first 24 games since the achieved the same tally in 1930-31.

Rodgers and West Ham boss David Moyes were once rivals on Merseyside, in charge of Liverpool and Everton respectively.

While Rodgers eyes success towards the top of the table, Moyes has taken on a relegation battle with a West Ham side who are outside the bottom three on goal difference alone.

Since the start of October 2019, no team have gained fewer points (11) or lost more games (11) in the Premier League than West Ham, and it gets no easier: Liverpool are their next opponents.

At least that game is a home fixture for the Hammers. Moyes' away record in matches against teams starting the day in the Premier League top four is diabolical, winning just one of 50 such games.

KEVIN KEEN TO HELP - DE BRUYNE IS KING OF THE ASSISTS

When Sergio Aguero turned in a cross from Kevin De Bruyne to give Manchester City a 1-0 victory at Sheffield United, it was more than merely two Premier League greats combining to deadly effect.

History, in fact, was made in that motion, with De Bruyne becoming the first player in the Premier League era to provide 15 or more assists in three different seasons.

The Belgian had 18 in 2016-17, 16 the following season, and after an injury-wracked 2018-19 campaign he already has 15 from 23 appearances this term.

The scale of De Bruyne's achievement can be better appreciated by considering the likes of Ryan Giggs, Cesc Fabregas, Dennis Bergkamp and his own City colleague David Silva have been unable to produce at that level so consistently.

Former Wolfsburg playmaker De Bruyne has entered the top 20 of all-time assist providers in the Premier League, and there is no keeping Aguero down either.

Aguero has been directly involved in 43 goals in 43 Premier League appearances against newly promoted teams - scoring 35 goals and assisting in eight more.

It took City until the 73rd minute to make their breakthrough at Bramall Lane, and a lot of the credit for the hosts' resilience went to goalkeeper Dean Henderson, whose first-half penalty save from Gabriel Jesus means he has stopped four of the last eight spot-kicks he has faced in English league football.

Sadio Mane has a hamstring injury but Liverpool do not yet know the extent of the problem, manager Jurgen Klopp said.

The Senegal star went off in the first half of the Premier League leaders' 2-1 victory at Wolves on Thursday.

Mane pulled up when running for a Mohamed Salah pass and was replaced by Takumi Minamino 33 minutes in.

Klopp hopes the injury is not serious but will wait until further checks can be carried out on Friday.

"Sadio, it's a real shame he had to go off," he told BBC Sport. "Hopefully, it's not too bad, just a muscle tweak, but we will see tomorrow."

Klopp added in a news conference: "He felt something in the hamstring. We don't know yet; we have to wait."

Jordan Henderson's opener was cancelled out by Raul Jimenez and Wolves looked to be heading for what would have been a deserved point before Roberto Firmino struck in the 84th minute.

Klopp accepted his side were not at their best, with Wolves' goal particularly frustrating, but he was delighted with Firmino's clinical composure.

"We scored a wonderful goal, we had wonderful possession but the set-up from Wolves is so good - yes, it's counter-attacking, but it's about being well in possession, using the width of the pitch," he said.

"The goal from a counter-attack doesn't make sense when you're one-nil up, but okay.

"We changed the system two or three times, we calmed it down. We had incredible chances in the first half and then at the end it was a magic moment from Bobby.

"The boys are human. It was a little bit up and down. We had a discussion on the pitch, there was stuff to improve but set-pieces can bring us back in the game, a good bit of skill can bring us back in the game. Wolves were really strong but it's clear we could settle again.

"You just have to find a way to win and have someone who makes the perfect decision and that was Bobby again."

Liverpool moved 16 points clear at the top of the Premier League after Roberto Firmino struck a late winner in a 2-1 defeat of Wolves at Molineux.

The Brazil striker's 10th goal of the season in all competitions six minutes from time was enough to seal a 22nd win from 23 league games this season for Jurgen Klopp's runaway leaders.

There was something of a setback for the visitors, though, who lost Sadio Mane to injury in the first half.

Jurgen Klopp's side had gone 725 minutes without conceding a goal in the top flight, stretching back to the 5-2 win over Everton in December, until Raul Jimenez cancelled out Jordan Henderson's opener.

It looked as though Wolves would be heading for what would have been a deserved point until Firmino fired home from inside the box, as Liverpool stretched their unbeaten league run to 40 matches.

Sadio Mane went off injured in the first half of the Premier League clash between Wolves and Liverpool at Molineux.

The Senegal star pulled up after running to meet a Mohamed Salah backheel around 32 minutes into the game.

Mane immediately signalled to the Liverpool bench that he needed to come off and he was replaced soon after by recent arrival Takumi Minamino.

It was unclear what the problem was with Mane, although it appeared to be muscular as he made his way down the tunnel.

Any long-term problem for Mane would be a blow to Jurgen Klopp, the forward having scored 11 and assisted a further six goals in the league this season.

The Reds were 1-0 up at the time of the injury, Jordan Henderson having broken the deadlock with a header from Trent Alexander-Arnold's corner.

Virgil van Dijk, Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland are the headline inclusions in FIFA Ultimate Team's latest Team of the Week, which contains a plethora of superstars.

Liverpool defender Van Dijk played a vital role as Liverpool beat bitter rivals Manchester United 2-0 on Sunday, scoring the opening goal and producing a generally commanding display at centre-back.

Paris Saint-Germain talent Mbappe leads the line following his brace against former employers Monaco in last week's 4-1 win, taking his Ligue 1 goal tally to 13 for the season.

The Frenchman is joined in attack by Haaland, who enjoyed a stunning debut for Borussia Dortmund.

Haaland came on in the 56th minute with Dortmund 3-1 down, but he went on to score a hat-trick and inspire a turnaround which saw Lucien Favre's side win 5-3 at Augsburg.

That trio are by no means the only big-name players with new in-form cards set to be available – below, we have the full squad.
