Jurgen Klopp has opted for one change for Liverpool’s first clash of 2020 tonight, as they take on the upwardly mobile Sheffield United at Anfield.
The Reds ended the decade with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Wolves, in a game marred by more VAR delays as scrutiny over the use of technology in the Premier League heightens.
Klopp will be hoping for a more straightforward evening as his side kicks off the new year, but they come up against a United side in excellent form this season.
As such, the manager has opted against major changes to his lineup, with Sunday’s FA Cup clash with Everton more likely to see heavy rotation as youngsters and new signing Takumi Minamino come into contention.
Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Wijnaldum, Milner; Salah, Mane, Firmino
Substitutes: Adrian, Phillips, Williams, Lallana, Jones, Elliott, Origi
Sheffield United: Henderson; Basham, Egan, O’Connell; Baldock, Lundstram, Norwood, Fleck, Stevens; McGoldrick, Mousset
Substitutes: Verrips, Jagielka, Besic, Osborn, Robinson, Sharp, McBurnie
