Liverpool have named a strong line-up for tonight’s Europa League clash at home to Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala.

The Reds are looking to bounce back from their 3-2 defeat at the hands of Udinese to get their Europa League campaign back on track.

But Brendan Rodgers’ men enter this game with caution, with the Merseyside Derby clash against Everton on Sunday.

Pepe Reina misses the game through injury, with Brad Jones again deputising following his clean sheet in the 1-0 win over Reading at the weekend.

Nuri Sahin, Jonjo Shelvey and Steven Gerrard make a strong Liverpool midfield with Oussama Assaidi and Stewart Downing supporting Luis Suarez up front.

Liverpool: Jones, Wisdom, Skrtel, Agger, Johnson, Gerrard, Shelvey, Sahin, Downing, Suarez, Assaidi.

Subs: Gulacsi, Carragher, Henderson, Allen, Sterling, Suso, Yesil.

Kick-off is 8.05pm and it’s live on ITV 4.
