Lucas Leiva replaces Jordon Ibe in Klopp’s only change.

That means Christian Benteke continues on the bench and Roberto Firmino up front.

Liverpool are likely to set up with Lucas holding in midfield, meaning Emre Can and Jordan Henderson can get forward more.

Visitors Man United are unchanged from the side that drew 3-3 with Newcastle in the week.
