Confirmed Liverpool lineup vs. Augsburg

Liverpool host FC Augsburg in the second leg of the Europa League last-32 tie, with Jurgen Klopp making one change to the side that started last week’s 0-0 draw in Germany.

Klopp’s one change sees Lucas Leiva replace Kolo Toure in defence – perhaps with Toure being saved for Sunday’s match against Man City.

Daniel Sturridge starts his third game in succession for the first time since March last year. He’s again assisted in attack by Brazilian duo Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho.

Belgian duo Christian Benteke and Divock Origi lead the attacking subs.

Liverpool will be hoping the match doesn’t go to extra time, with the League Cup final taking place at Wembley less than 70 hours after full time.

Liverpool: Mignolet, Clyne, Lucas, Sakho, Moreno, Can, Henderson, Milner, Firmino, Coutinho, Sturridge.

Subs: Ward, Toure, Benteke, Origi, Smith, Teixeira, Chirivella.

Augsburg: Hitz, Verhaegh, Janker, Klavan, Stafylidis, Kohr, Esswein, Koo, Altintop, Werner, Caiuby.

Subs: Manninger, Opare, Parker, Moravek, Bobadilla, Max, Rieder.
