Liverpool are in action against West Ham in the FA Cup fourth round replay at Upton Park this evening (7.45pm GMT kick off).
Jurgen Klopp names a strong XI, but is with only one recognised centre-back after Steven Caulker failed a fitness test after suffering with a back injury before the game to rule him out.
That means Lucas Leiva starts alongside Tiago Ilori in the Reds’ defence.
At full-back, Jon Flanagan and Brad Smith start.
Kevin Stewart and Pedro Chirivella anchor the midfield, with Jordon Ibe, Philippe Coutinho -returning from injury- and Joao Carlos Teixeira behind Christian Benteke.
Youngster Cameron Brannagan, who impressed in the original tie at Anfield, is ruled out through illness.
Goalkeeper Simon Mignolet retains his place despite yet another mistake in the match against Sunderland at the weekend. Recalled loanee Danny Ward is sub again. The keeper is the only player to keep his place from the 2-2 draw with Sunderland on Saturday.
Daniel Sturridge is among the subs, along with Divock Origi, James Milner and Jordan Henderson.
Liverpool: Mignolet, Flanagan, Lucas, Ilori, Smith, Stewart, Chirivella, Teixeira, Coutinho, Ibe, Benteke.
Subs: Ward, Enrique, Milner, Henderson, Sturridge, Origi, Randall.
West Ham: Randolph, O’Brien, Reid, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Noble (c), Obiang, Antonio, Kouyate, Payet, Valencia.
Subs: Adrian, Carroll, Collins, Moses, Oxford, Cullen, Parfitt-Williams.
