Captain Steven Gerrard starts in his bid to return to full match fitness following a hamstring problem, whilst Spanish youngster Luis Alberto accompanies him in midfield.

Martin Kelly starts in defence alongside Kolo Toure, Daniel Agger and Aly Cissokho. Brad Jones replaces Simon Mignolet in goal.

Both Victor Moses and Raheem Sterling join Iago Aspas in attack, with Luis Suarez rested on the bench.

17-year-old Cameron Brannagan makes the bench, taking up squad number 50. Defender Tiago Ilori is also named amongst the substitutes.
