Jurgen Klopp makes three changes to the side that lost 3-0 at Watford last time out, with Divock Origi coming into the attack – chosen ahead of Christian Benteke.

The injured Martin Skrtel is replaced by Dejan Lovren in defence, while it looks like a change to 4-2-3-1, with Jordan Henderson and Emre Can alongside each other – with no place for Lucas Leiva in the starting XI.

The other change sees Simon Mignolet return in place of Adam Bogdan in goal.

Roberto Firmino keeps his place, lining up alongside Adam Lallana and Philippe Coutinho behind Origi.

Joao Carlos Teixeira is among the subs today.
