Key Man Ruled Out: Predicted Liverpool 4-3-3 Line-Up To Face Sunderland

Liverpool will be looking to reclaim top spot in the Premier League table when they take on Sunderland at Anfield on Saturday afternoon. Here is the side I think Jurgen Klopp will select for the game:
Goalkeeper: Loris Karius has started in each of the last seven league games so I think it’s safe to say he’s established himself as Klopp’s No.1 ahead of Simon Mignolet, so I expect the German to keep his place this weekend.
Defence: Liverpool have no fresh injury worries to contend with at the back so I don’t predict any chances to what has become a familiar looking defence. That means James Milner should keep his place ahead of Alberto Moreno at left-back with Nathaniel Clyne on the right while Joel Matip will be looking to continue his impressive partnership alongside Dejan Lovren.
Midfield: Adam Lallana was absent from training at Melwood this afternoon so it looks as though the midfielder is set to once again miss out with a groin injury which he picked up while away with England during the recent international break.
That means that Emre Can should continue alongside Georginio Wijnaldum and captain Jordan Henderson in the three-man midfield this weekend.
Attack: Again, Liverpool have no fresh fitness concerns in attack so the only question is whether Klopp will decide to freshen things up by recalling Daniel Sturridge or name an unchanged line-up for the first team this season.
Despite drawing a blank at Southampton last weekend, the Merseysiders played well and could easily have won that game so I think Klopp will stick with his preferred front three of Philippe Coutinho, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino against Sunderland.
