Confirmed Liverpool lineup vs. Huddersfield: Henderson back but Van Dijk on bench

Jurgen Klopp has made six changes to his Liverpool lineup for Tuesday night’s Premier League with Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium.

The Reds take to Yorkshire looking to respond to back-to-back defeats to the league’s bottom two sides, facing off against a Terriers outfit currently sitting 14th.

Having lost to both Swansea and West Brom in the past eight days, Klopp’s side need to produce a strong performance against their newly promoted opponents.

And the German has retained a strong core to his starting lineup, despite naming close to his best selection in Saturday night’s farcical FA Cup defeat at Anfield.

Loris Karius starts in goal, with the 24-year-old operating behind a back four of Joe Gomez, Joel Matip, Dejan Lovren and Andrew Robertson.

Virgil van Dijk is among the subs with reports earlier in the day suggesting he has been struggling with illness.

Jordan Henderson returns in the No. 6 role, with Klopp having praised his performance as a substitute against West Brom, and the captain is flanked by Emre Can and James Milner.

With few options to alternate following Daniel Sturridge‘s loan move to join the Baggies, Klopp has again opted for Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino in attack.

Huddersfield: Lossl; Hadergjonaj, Kongolo, Schindler, Jorgensen; Lowe, Mooy, Hogg, Billing; Mounie, Depoitre

Substitutes: Coleman, Smith, Van La Parra, Pritchard, Ince, Quaner, Hefele

Liverpool: Karius; Gomez, Matip, Lovren, Robertson; Henderson, Can, Milner; Salah, Mane, Firmino

Substitutes: Mignolet, Van Dijk, Alexander-Arnold, Wijnaldum, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ings, Solanke
