4-3-3: Klopp To Make 3 Changes | Expected Liverpool XI vs Watford
Liverpool take on Watford in the FA Cup quarter finals at Anfield on Saturday. Here is the side I think Jurgen Klopp will select for the game:
Liverpool will be looking to cement their place in the top four when they take on Watford at Anfield on Saturday.
Here is the side I think Jurgen Klopp will select for the game:
Goalkeeper: Loris Karius is now Liverpool’s first choice goalkeeper and I don’t think Klopp will look to rotate at this stage of the competition so Simon Mignolet will have to make do with a place on the bench.
Defence: We could see a couple of changes in defence as Joe Gomez is pushing for a recall at right-back so Trent Alexander-Arnold may drop out but Andrew Robertson should retain his place on the left.
Dejan Lovren has been Klopp’s preferred option alongside Virgil van Dijk in recent weeks but he wasn’t at his best during the defeat to Manchester United last weekend.
Therefore, we could see the Croatian international drop out with Joel Matip pushing for a recall in the middle of defence.
Midfield: Jordan Henderson was left out of the starting eleven at Old Trafford last weekend but I think the skipper will be recalled on Saturday afternoon.
James Milner is the man most likely to make way as Emre Can should keep his place while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain may also be retained to add some spark in the middle of the park.
That means Georginio Wijnaldum and Adam Lallana will have to make do with places among the substitutes once again.
Attack: I don’t expect Klopp to change anything in attack as he should go full strengthen up front with his preferred trio all keeping their places.
Mohamed Salah has been in sensational form this season while Sadio Mane has also been back to his best in recent weeks so I expect the duo to start in attack once again on Saturday.
The likes of Dominic Solanke and Danny Ings are pushing for recalls but I think Klopp will stick with his first choice striker meaning Roberto Firmino should lead the line up front once again.
