[Teams] Liverpool vs Stoke City: Confirmed Line-ups
Liverpool kick off the new 2013/14 Premier League season as they welcome Stoke City to Anfield on Saturday lunchtime.
The Reds pre-season preparations have been overshadowed by the future of Luis Suarez with the striker spending much of the summer pushing for a move, but with the Uruguayan still serving his 10-game ban Brendan Rodgers will be keen to focus on footballing matters today and start the new season on a positive note.
New signings Simon Mignolet, Kolo Toure and Iago Aspas all make their debuts today while Daniel Sturridge has been passed fit to start.
Here are the confirmed line-ups:
Mignolet, Johnson, Enrique, Toure, Agger, Lucas, Henderson, Gerrard, Coutinho, Aspas, Sturridge.
Subs: Jones, Sterling, Wisdom, Ibe, Allen, Borini, Luis Alberto
Begovic, Cameron, Shawcross, Huth, Pieters, Whelan, Nzonzi, Palacios, Walters, Crouch, Etherington
Subs: Muniesa, Pennant, Jones, Wilson, Adam, Sorensen, Jerome
