Jurgen Klopp has two big decisions to make in terms of his team selection for Saturday’s tie with Hull City…
We’ve beaten Chelsea, Arsenal and Leicester in the Premier League, but if we can’t down sides like Hull at Anfield, we’re not going to contend for anything.
Liverpool’s manager needs to decide with keeper to go with and which forward, from four, he’ll leave out..
So from back to front, here’s who Klopp will pick and why.
It’s a difficult one between the sticks, because Simon Mignolet has done little wrong this season, but he hasn’t kept a Premier League clean-sheet yet and Loris Karius came in on Tuesday and shone.
Long-term, the German suits Klopp’s demands in terms of his feet and the way we want to keep possession. Dropping Mignolet will be ruthless, but that hasn’t stopped Klopp before.
The defence picks itself: Nathaniel Clyne at right-back, James Milner on the left and Dejan Lovren coming back in to partner Joel Matip.
The midfield three has started every top flight game this term and will continue to do so. That’s skipper Jordan Henderson holding with Adam Lallana and Gini Wijnaldum either side.
Up top, we predict Daniel Sturridge will sit out, with Sadio Mane and Coutinho flanking Roberto Firmino in a fluid front-three. Sturridge picked up a slight knock against Chelsea, and it’s not like Klopp to risk the Englishman under any circumstances. What’s more, Coutinho, Firmino and Mane are in terrific form and all well worth their place in the side.
