Liverpool simply need to win when they entertain Middlesbrough at Anfield this afternoon to ensure they finish in the top four.

Jurgen Klopp has been handed a boost with Roberto Firmino passed fit to start after recovering from a muscle injury so the Brazilian international replaces Divock Origi in attack.

Otherwise, Klopp sticks with his usual side with Nathaniel Clyne, Joel Matip, Dejan Lovren and James Milner in defence while Emre Can lines-up in midfield along with Adam Lallana and Gini Wijnaldum.

Philippe Coutinho keeps his place in attack while Daniel Sturridge once again starts up front and he’ll be looking to build on his goal from last weekend.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Liverpool

Mignolet, Clyne, Matip, Lovren, Milner, Can, Wijnaldum, Lallana, Coutinho, Firmino, Sturridge.

Subs: Karius, Moreno, Alexander-Arnold, Klavan, Lucas, Grujic, Origi.

Middlesbrough

Guzan, Fabio, Chambers, Gibson, Friend, Clayton, Leadbitter, Forshaw, Downing, Bamford, Gestede

Subs: Dimi, Ayala, Bernardo, De Roon, Fischer, Stuani, Negredo.
