Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson are recalled in the full-back positions for Liverpool with Ki-Jana Hoever and James Milner making way despite both getting on the scoresheet in midweek.
Fabinho and Jordan Henderson come in to the midfield with Adam Lallana and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain dropping out while Gini Wijnaldum is also recalled after being rested against MK Dons.
Liverpool’s feared front three all return as Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino are brought back in after being rested on Wednesday while Sadio Mane is fit to start after recovering from a knock that he picked up against Chelsea last weekend.
Youngsters Rhian Brewster, Harvey Elliott and Curtis Jones all dropping out of the squad with Divock Origi passed fit to return to the bench after recovering from an ankle injury.
Here are the confirmed line-ups:
Henderson, Baldock, Stevens, Fleck, O’Connell, Basham, Lundstram, McBurnie, Robinson, Egan, Norwood.
Subs: Freeman, Jagielka, Mousset, Osborn, Clarke, Moore, Besic
Adrian, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Mane, Salah, Firmino.
