Liverpool will look to look to get their top four push back on track when they take on Norwich City at Carrow Road on Saturday afternoon. Here is the side I think Jurgen Klopp will pick.

Goalkeeper: Simon Mignolet started ahead of Adam Bogdan during Wednesday night’s FA Cup replay win over Exeter and the Belgian is expected to be the only player to keep his place from the side that lined-up at Anfield.

Defence: Klopp is set to make wholesale changes to his line-up with Nathaniel Clyne, Alberto Moreno and Mamadou Sakho all expected to be recalled. Connor Randall, Brad Smith, Tiago Llori and Jose Enrique will all drop out.

Dejan Lovren is close to making his comeback from injury but this game may come too soon so with Martin Skrtel also sidelined, Kolo Toure should resume his role in the back four.

Midfield: Lucas Leiva, Emre Can and Jordan Henderson are all expected to return after being rested last night so youngsters Cameron Brannagan and Kevin Stewart will drop out while Joe Allen is also set to miss out despite getting himself on the score-sheet for the second time in three games.

Attack: Christian Benteke drew a blank against Exeter so the Belgian international failed to do enough to show Klopp he deserves a regular starting role up front. With Daniel Sturridge still working his way back to full fitness, I expect Roberto Firmino to spearhead the attack on Saturday.

Adam Lallana and James Milner should get recalls with Jordon Ibe and Joao Teixeira dropping out despite impressing in the FA Cup clash last time out.

Here is how I think we’ll see Liverpool line-up:
