Liverpool are deploying an exciting, attacking XI this evening to face Red Star in the Champions League.
Jurgen Klopp has taken Dejan Lovren out of the side and moved Joe Gomez back in the middle, allowing Trent Alexander-Arnold his spot at right-back.
In midfield, Fabinho holds, with the Brazilian making his first start for Liverpool in a serious competition. Gini Wijnaldum and Xherdan Shaqiri are alongside him in a midfield that will hopefully cause our opponents issues.
Up top, it’s the famous front-three of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.
Fans on Twitter were absolutely delighted when the news broke, especially with Dutchman van Dijk as skipper!
