Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has been handed a major boost as Alisson Becker has been passed fit to return in goal after making a swift recovery from a shoulder injury so Adrian drops to the bench.
Obviously Virgil van Dijk remains out while Joel Matip failed a late fitness test to Liverpool go with the same back four that started against Ajax in midweek with Fabinho alongside Joe Gomez in the heart of defence while Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson once again occupy the full-back positions.
Jordan Henderson returns in midfield to partner Gini Wijnaldum while Diogo Joto is given a start in a very attack-minded Liverpool side. Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane also support Roberto Firmino up front.
