Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler has said that he would take over as manager for the Reds' trip to Arsenal in the EFL Cup.
Since then, news has broken that Pep Lijnders has also now tested positive as well as a number of other coaching staff and players, leaving the Reds to formally request to the EFL that the game is postponed from tomorrow night.
Whether that happens remains to be seen but, if it does go ahead, it'll be interesting to see who exactly is on the touchline for the clash.
Fowler, rather jokingly on Twitter, put his hat in the ring:

Anfield Watch Verdict
The former Liverpool no.9 would surely be a popular one-off choice and he does have managerial experience from work overseas.
Of course, it's never going to happen as there will be other coaches that can take up the reins if needs be but, in truth, this game is surely going to be cancelled.
Liverpool have already requested for that to be the case and with a growing number of positive covid tests combined with several injuries and the call-ups of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Naby Keita to AFCON, it's surely likely the game will be knocked on the head.
Shrewsbury are meant to visit Anfield in the FA Cup at the weekend, meanwhile, and that is surely in doubt now too.
