The Belgian international goalkeeper gets the nod to start in goal for Brendan Rodgers’ men, whilst Toure begins the game in central defence alongside Daniel Agger.
Jay Spearing, thought to be close to a move to Blackburn Rovers, makes what could be his final appearance for Liverpool. Jon Flanagan also begins the game.
Rodgers’ other signings of the summer Luis Alberto and Iago Aspas are on the bench, and should feature later in the game.
Liverpool: Mignolet, Spearing, Agger, Toure, Flanagan, Henderson, Allen, Assaidi, Ibe, Coutinho, Borini.
Subs: Ward, Johnson, Skrtel, Wisdom, Robinson, Lucas, Alberto, Pacheco, Aspas, Sterling, Downing, Kelly.
