‘What a bench…’ Reds react to Klopp’s 1st Starting XI of the season

Posted by

Liverpool play West Ham at 1:30pm; our first game of this season’s Premier League.

And fans are delighted with team news, with Joe Gomez fit and available to start alongside Virgil van Dijk in defence.

The Englishman missed the last friendly of the summer against Torino, but has crucially won his race to get healthy in time for today’s Anfield clash.

Naby Keita makes brilliant claim about LFC’s front-three

With Dejan Lovren, Joel Matip and Ragnar Klavan all out, it was crucial he’d make it.

Elsewhere, Alisson makes his debut between the sticks, Andrew Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold start at fullback, Naby Keita gets the call-up in midfield alongside Gini Wijnaldum and James Milner, with the regular front-three at the top.

Fans on Twitter were predominantly impressed with the bench, though!

The likes of Xherdan Shaqiri, Daniel Sturridge, Fabinho and Jordan Henderson all make up the seven, so we have top options in midfield and attack as potential replacements.
