[Teams] Genk vs Liverpool: Confirmed line-ups for Champions League clash

By on October 23, 2019


Liverpool are in Belgium to take on Genk in their Champions League group stage clash at the Luminus Arena this evening.

Jurgen Klopp has made five changes from the side that draw with Manchester United at the weekend with James Milner coming in at right-back in place of Trent Alexander-Arnold – who’s ruled out due to illness.


Dejan Lovren replaces Joel Matip after he was ruled out with a knee injury that he sustained at Old Trafford while Virgil van Dijk, Andrew Robertson and Alisson Becker all retain their places.

Fabinho once again starts for Liverpool in the holding role but Jordan Henderson and Gini Wijnaldum are given a breather. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is recalled in midfield while Naby Keita also comes into the side after impressing off the bench at the weekend.

Mohamed Salah is given an immediate recall to the Liverpool starting eleven after recovering from an ankle injury which kept him out of the United game. Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino retain their places in attack so Divock Origi is the man to make way.

Joe Gomez is named on the bench while young striker Rhian Brewster is also named among the substitutes this evening.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:


Coucke, Maehle, Cuesta, Lucumi, Uronen, Bongonda, Heynen, Berge, Ito, Samatta, Onuachu

Subs: Vandevoordt, De Norre, Dewaest, Odey, Hrosovsky, Hagi, Ndongala


Alisson, Milner, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Keita, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Salah, Mane, Firmino

Subs: Adrian, Gomez, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Lallana, Origi, Brewster
