Liverpool will look to close-in on the top four when they entertain Premier League leaders Arsenal at Anfield tomorrow night. Here is the side I think Jurgen Klopp will pick.

Goalkeeper: Simon Mignolet is expected to shake off a minor knock to start in goal with Adam Bogdan dropping to the bench after his disappointing run-out against Exeter on Friday night.

Defence: Klopp is set to make wholesale changes to his side after fielding an inexperienced fringe team in the FA Cup last time out with Alberto Moreno and Nathaniel Clyne ready to return in the full-back positions.

Kolo Toure has recovered from a knock and should start against his former side while Steven Caulker is eligible to make his debut after completing a loan move from QPR today. Mamadou Sakho is pushing to make his comeback from a knee injury but Klopp may decide not to rush him back now he’s got Caulker available for selection.

Midfield: Lucas Leiva, Emre Can and James Milner are all expected to start in midfield after being rested on Friday night. Jordan Henderson is close to making his comeback from a foot problem but this game is likely to come too soon for the Reds skipper.

Attack: Daniel Sturridge is still working his way back to full fitness following a hamstring injury and with Divock Origi ruled out for another month following knee surgery, Klopp may have no option but to stick with Christian Benteke up front despite the Belgian international’s poor display against Exeter.

Philippe Coutinho is also still out with a hamstring complaint so Roberto Firmino and Adam Lallana could occupy the attacking midfield roles against the Gunners tomorrow night, although Jordon Ibe is back in contention after recovering from a hamstring injury.

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

BACK LIVERPOOL AT 9/1 OR ARSENAL AT 7/1 + MONEY BACK IF YOU LOSE

What do you think? What line-up would you like to see start?

    Lallana plays on the right…not the left. Switch those around, mate.

    sakho will start along side Caulker, but also Firmino will play as a center foward.

    How can you state as a fact Klopp has made 10 changes when you haven’t have no more of an idea than the rest of us. and then say it’s a predicted line up. Are you a psychic or just a dickhead?
