Alexander Doni continues in goal in Pepe Reina’s absence, while Sebastian Coates comes into defence to replace Jamie Carragher.
Glen Johnson returns to the team after injury, likely at left back with John Flanagan continuing at right back.
There’s a youthful midfield trio of Jordan Henderson, Jonjo Shelvey and Jay Spearing.
Maxi Rodriguez and Craig Bellamy add some experience alongside Andy Carroll in attack.
Martin Skrtel captains the side for the first time. There’s no place on the bench for exciting youngster Raheem Sterling – despite his exclusion from the reserves’ match earlier today. Instead there’s 4 defenders on the bench.
