Captain Steven Gerrard lines up behind Rickie Lambert in attack, Joe Allen comes into midfield, while Jose Enrique comes in at left-back for Alberto Moreno.

Kolo Toure is ruled out through injury, meaning Dejan Lovren returns to the side alongside Martin Skrtel.

The Reds must win in order to progress from the group.

Again there’s no recognised forward on the bench.

We expect Liverpool to lineup in a 4-2-3-1 shape, with Henderson on the right and Sterling on the left.

Liverpool: Mignolet, Johnson, Skrtel, Lovren, Enrique, Lucas, Allen, Henderson, Gerrard, Sterling, Lambert

Subs: Jones, Sakho, Moreno, Can, Lallana, Coutinho, Markovic.
