Jurgen Klopp makes two changes to the team that beat Man City 3-0 in the league on Wednesday night, with Alberto Moreno and Mamadou Sakho coming into the side.

Nathaniel Clyne drops out after playing the full game against City three days after the 120 minutes at Wembley, that means Jon Flanagan continues at right-back, with Alberto Moreno back in at left-back.

Sakho replaces Kolo Toure at the back.

Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho are among the subs.

Palace, who haven’t won in their last 11 league games, replace regular keeper Wayne Hennessey with Alex McCarthy. Yannick Bolasie starts.

    • So there we have it joe moreno will be starting against the mancs without smith even being given a chance to claim the spot
      It stinks

  1. Good to see Sturridge available as a sub – hope to see him get 30+mins and make an impact in the second half.

    • if we have a good lead in the first half, i would expect benteke to get subbed and sturridge fresh for thursday

  2. guess klopp keeping clyne, sturridge and coutinho amped up for thursday.. higher priority on europa.. gd lineup :)

  3. Quite a strange lineup, not sure why Moreno is starting, Clyne was miles better at lb against city, Coutinho must have an issue also for him not to be starting again. However that is a strong bench so if there’s any issues we don’t have to worry! Good luck boys, nothing but a win to start making us believe once again!

  4. I look forward to what Alby can do today, he must know he’s under scrutiny and needs to improve. Hopefully my faith in Lallana works out because he has a history with LFC of inconsistency.

  5. I expect to see Sakho knocking his skull against Lovren. Much like Skrtel used to whack Carra’s.

    But LFC will win by 2 goals nonetheless.

  6. Flanno getting his chance to prove his fitness. It’s a big ask for him, but in order to get that new contract he’s going to have to play most games for the rest of the season, stay free of any significant injuries and keep up his good form. Not that it should be easy for anyone in the PL. If he’s good enough he’ll show his class, and if he’s not fit enough then Liverpool might not risk a new contract.

  7. I hope the lads aren’t thinking oh this will be easy cus of palaces poor form! Need to be on it like we were against city! I just want them 3 points and put us in good steed ahead of scum game

    • I think once klopp knows we can’t make top 4, he will throw him in for next season, that way there won’t be that bigger pressure put on him.

      • not going to happen hes given others a chance ward as not even had a sniff in the cup despite whole sale changes
        I cold under stand it if mingolet was a world beater but he aint

    • Completely disagree. He’s a Liverpool player and with Bogdan not trusted we needed cover. Couldn’t give a toss about his preference. If he wants to play for Aberdeen, then put in a transfer request!
      What did you expect us to go into games with no reserve keeper on the bench!?

    • Obviously not good enough,if he had talent klopp would have played him by now!he see’s what he need to see in training, never judge a man that brought through talents like gotze,hummels,lewandowski,reus,gundogan and aubumeyang, he knows what he is doing

    • I know, but he is there for backup. Giving Ward a chance know means gambling on the fourth spot. Migs has given some good saves, and by coaching Klopp thinks he is the safest off them.

  8. The thing about Moreno is he was told to play the Wing Back/Attacking Full Back by Rodgers & Kloppo kept that going, if Klopp instructs him to do as Cyne & Flanno do, get forward when you can but keep a defensive mindset at all times, I’m sure he can improve..!
    Or we could convert him to a winger to utilse his speed, worked for Bale..!

    • Cant see it to be honest. He doesn’t have any game intelligence and switches off in games,. Teams target him

  9. Glad to see Flanno in the first 11… and a good rest for clyne.
    Moreno…arrhhhh…will be facing bolasie or zaha.. coz they interchange at times as they might find it difficult to pass thru flanno… Therefore moreno… u got to be very alert boy, with 2 super candidates who can get penalty for their team.
