On Thursday night, Liverpool will face Toulouse in the Europa League knowing that victory would seal progression to the knockout phase. If the Reds win, they will be at least eight points clear of the team in third place in Group E with only six more available.

Liverpool could also seal top spot if it wins and Union SG, currently on four points, fails to beat LASK in the other game. That's particularly significant, because the runner-up in the group will be required to take on a third-place Champions League team in an additional play-off round in the new year, rather than advancing straight to the round of 16.

Jürgen Klopp's side will be confident of getting the job done in France, having scored five times in the reverse fixture. Thijs Dallinga equalized for the visitor after Diogo Jota's opener, but Wataru Endō, Darwin Núñez, Ryan Gravenberch and Mohamed Salah all found the net to blow the Ligue 1 outfit away.

Since that game, Toulouse lost two in succession in the league, falling 3-0 away to Montpellier and 2-1 at home to newly-promoted Le Havre. It has now dropped to 14th in an 18-team division, just a point above the relegation zone. As we approach kick off, here are the latest Liverpool.com stories that you can't afford to miss.

Ronald Koeman forgives Ryan Gravenberch for Liverpool call

Netherlands national team manager Ronald Koeman has confirmed that the punishment given to Liverpool midfielder Ryan Gravenberch is now 'over'. After arriving at Anfield from Bayern Munich on transfer deadline day, Gravenberch turned down a call-up to the September under-21 squad to focus on adapting to his new surroundings, and was subsequently omitted from the October and November rosters by his angered coaches.

However, it seems that the 21-year-old will now be considered eligible for selection once again in 2024 after Koeman opted to end his exile. Read the rest of his comments, and our verdict, by clicking here.

Liverpool injury news before Toulouse

Liverpool will still be without Thiago, Stefan Bajčetić and Andy Robertson when it takes on Toulouse on Thursday. Thiago hasn't so much as kicked a ball for the Reds this season amid a protracted rehabilitation from hip surgery, while Bajčetić was only able to play 72 minutes across a couple of September outings before suffering a setback himself. Neither is available for selection yet, with the former expected to be out until the new year. The timeline is similar for left-back Robertson, who underwent a procedure on a dislocated shoulder last month.

Meanwhile, neither Curtis Jones nor Ryan Gravenberch were pictured as part of Wednesday's training session in Kirkby. Jones had missed the weekend's draw with Luton because of a minor injury. For a full lowdown from Emmet Gates, click here.
