Kolo Toure and Martin Skrtel partner each other in defence – the last time they did so was the defeat at Hull City.

Steven Gerrard returns to the starting eleven for the first time in a Premier League game in 2014. He’s alongside Lucas and Jordan Henderson.

The same front three of Luis Suarez, Raheem Sterling and Philippe Coutinho continue.

Daniel Sturridge is fit enough for a place on the bench but there’s no Mamadou Sakho in the squad due to injury.

Liverpool: Mignolet, Johnson, Skrtel, Toure, Cissokho, Lucas, Gerrard, Henderson, Sterling, Coutinho, Suarez.

Subs: Ward, Kelly, Ibe, Aspas, Moses, Sturridge, Alberto.

Stoke City: Butland; Cameron, Shawcross (c), Wilson, Pieters; Walters, Nzonzi, Adam, Whelan, Arnautovic; Crouch.

Subs: Sorensen, Muniesa, Pennant, Palacios, Etherington, Shotton, Ireland.
