Jurgen Klopp has named teenager Trent Alexander-Arnold in his starting lineup for Liverpool’s clash away to Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.
Klopp has made four changes following the midweek defeat to Southampton in the League Cup semi-finals, with the German eager to see his side return to form in the Premier League.
Simon Mignolet replaces Loris Karius in goal, despite the 23-year-old’s impressive display at St. Mary’s.
In defence, Alexander-Arnold joins Dejan Lovren, Ragnar Klavan and James Milner, with Joel Matip omitted due to concerns over his eligibility.
Nathaniel Clyne is not in the squad after suffering a rib injury, with Alexander-Arnold coming in for his full Premier League debut as a result.
Jordan Henderson makes his return from a heel injury, picking up where he left off as Klopp’s deep-lying midfielder, flanked by Emre Can and Georginio Wijnaldum.
With Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge on the bench, Adam Lallana and Divock Origi join Roberto Firmino in attack.
The Reds haven’t won at Old Trafford since 2014, but find themselves in a similar position to that day three years ago, able to continue their push for the title and damage United’s hopes.
If he is brought on, Coutinho, who scored against United in the Europa League last season, will give Klopp a better chance of ensuring that is the case.
