Liverpool get back to Premier League action when they take on Brighton & Hove Albion at Anfield this afternoon.
Jurgen Klopp is without influential midfielder Fabinho after he was ruled out until 2020 with an ankle ligament injury so Jordan Henderson and Gini Wijnaldum are joined by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the middle of the park today.
Joel Matip remains out with a knee injury so Dejan Lovren continues alongside Virgil van Dijk in the middle of the back four with Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson occupying the full-back positions.
Mohamed Salah once again starts in the Liverpool attack and the Egyptian international is joined by Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino meaning Divock Origi has to settle for a place on the bench.
Xherdan Shaqiri is also named among the substitutes for Liverpool along with Naby Keita, Adam Lallana, James Milner and Joe Gomez so Klopp has plenty of options to call upon if needed.
Here are the confirmed line-ups:
Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson, Wijnaldum, Henderson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mane, Salah, Firmino
Subs: Adrian, Gomez, Milner, Keita, Lallana, Shaqiri, Origi
Ryan; Dunk, Webster, Burn, Montoya; Bissouma, Stephens, Propper, Mooy, Gross; Connolly.
