Liverpool starting XI vs Barcelona – Gomez at RB, Firmino on bench

Posted by

For the away leg against Barcelona, Jürgen Klopp has been forced into making some surprise team selections for what looks set to be a classic European night for the Reds.

Tasked with keeping Leo Messi & Co. out, its Alisson Becker between the sticks with Virgil van Dijk and Joël Matip in the heart of defence. Andy Robertson is obviously at left-back, while the returning Joe Gomez beats Trent Alexander-Arnold to the right-back spot.

Its a steely midfield of James Milner alongside Gini Wijnaldum and Fabinho.

Our attacking front three is comprised of the surprising inclusion of Naby Keïta (presumably on the left), together with Sadio Mané and Mohamed Salah.

With the second leg to come at Anfield next week, any result the Reds can get tonight at Camp Nou will stand us in very good stead as we seek to progress to back-to-back Champions League finals.
