on 23.01.2016


Jurgen Klopp makes one enforced change to the team that lost to Manchester United last time, with Jordon Ibe replacing the injured Adam Lallana.

Lallana has a small muscle issue, as revealed at Klopp’s pre-match press conference, and is considered fit enough for the bench.

That means Lallana lines up in attack alongside Roberto Firmino and James Milner, with a midfield three of Lucas, Emre Can and Jordan Henderson.

The back four remains the same, with Martin Skrtel and Dejan Lovren still sidelined.

Jon Flanagan is among the Reds’ substitutes and could make his first league appearance since May 2014 after playing 40 minutes in Wednesday’s FA Cup replay against Exeter City.

New signings Steven Naismith and Ivo Pinto start for Norwich.

A win for Klopp’s side can temporarily take them up to seventh in the league table.
