It’s not often we’re so surprised by Jurgen Klopp’s lineups!
We were almost certain Gini Wijnaldum wouldn’t play after limping off against Maribor on Wednesday, but the Dutchman starts.
We were more certain that Sadio Mane would only be a sub after the boss said he had ’20 minutes’ in him yesterday – but he starts too.
And Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been selected in central midfield for the first time in Jordan Henderson’s absence through injury!
Oh, and Simon Mignolet is Liverpool captain.
Naturally, fans lost the plot on Twitter!

Mane is getting rushed in.. Too risky to play him this game.. Sturridge should have started.

I'm angry Sturridge ain't started today

Slightly nervous about Mane being rushed, Oxlade-Chambo might be interesting. Baffled by Mignolet as captain.
