Klopp will miss the game due to a suspected bout of appendicitis, but while there are considerable changes in the dugout as the Reds welcome Sunderland to Merseyside, Liverpool line up in the same shape as in Tuesday night’s 2-0 defeat to Leicester City.
Moreno’s poor contribution against the Foxes led to calls for one of Brad Smith or Jon Flanagan to take his place, but the Spaniard is retained, and will be looking for an improved performance.
Henderson lined up on the right wing at the King Power Stadium, but may revert to a central role on Saturday.
Sturridge is including in the matchday squad for the first time in two months.[td_ad_box spot_id=”custom_ad_1″]
