Liverpool kick off the new Premier League campaign with a trip to Vicarage Road to take on Watford this lunchtime. 

Jurgen Klopp has handed Alberto Moreno his first Premier League start in 10 months as the Spaniard lines-up at left-back with James Milner named among the substitutes.

Trent Alexander-Arnold gets a chance to impress at right-back with Nathaniel Clyne injured while Dejan Lovren starts alongside Joel Matip in the heart of defence.
