Sturridge makes his first appearance since April, starting alongside Christian Benteke up front.

Sakho replaes Dejan Lovren in the back four, with Alberto Moreno also coming into the side in place of Joe Gomez, who drops to the bench.

It looks like a midfield diamond will make its long-awaited return, with Lucas holding, Emre Can and James Milner on either side, and Philippe Coutinho in the No. 10 role.
