Liverpool will look to end their Europa League group stage campaign on a high when they take on FC Sion in Switzerland on Thursday night having already qualified for the last 32. Here is the latest team news and the side I think the Jurgen Klopp will pick.
Goalkeeper: Simon Mignolet is expected to keep his place in goal ahead of Adam Bogdan.
Defence: Klopp is set to make some changes to his starting eleven and he’s left Alberto Moreno back in Merseyside to rest ahead of Sunday’s clash with West Brom so Nathaniel Clyne could revert to left-back with young Connor Randall coming in at right back.
With Mamadou Sakho still out injured, Dejan Lovern will continue at the back but Martin Skrtel could be given a breather with Kolo Toure starting.
Midfield: Emre Can returns from a domestic ban so he should start in place of Lucas Leiva – who’s also been left back in the UK to rest along with Joe Allen. Jordan Henderson has returned from a foot injury and we could see him make his first start in over three months alongside James Milner in midfield.
Attack: Daniel Sturridge has once again picked up another injury with the striker ruled out with a hamstring problem. Klopp is therefore expected to protect Christian Benteke with Divock Origi leading the line up front.
Adam Lallana should get a recall to the starting eleven after being left out against Newcastle on Sunday while Roberto Firmino should keep his place in attack. Philippe Coutinho has made the trip to Switzerland after returning to full training following a hamstring injury but I don’t think Klopp will risk him from the start.
Here is how I think we’ll see Liverpool line-up:
