Emre Can makes his first Premier League start of the season as Jurgen Klopp names his starting lineup for Liverpool’s clash with Man United.
The German has suffered with an ankle problem for much of the campaign so far, but comes into Klopp’s side following injury to Adam Lallana and Georginio Wijnaldum.
It remains unclear whether Klopp will move to a 4-2-3-1 formation for this all-important fixture, but he has a number of options at his disposal.
Loris Karius keeps his place in goal, behind a back four of Nathaniel Clyne, Joel Matip, Dejan Lovren and James Milner.
Can is joined in midfield by Jordan Henderson, while Philippe Coutinho may drop into Lallana’s role as he did during Liverpool’s 2-1 win away to Swansea City last time out.
If not, and Klopp opts for a 4-2-3-1, he will join Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Daniel Sturridge in attack.
Lallana makes the bench, while Simon Mignolet is once again named in reserve, alongside Alberto Moreno, Ragnar Klavan, Lucas Leiva, Marko Grujic and Divock Origi.
