Liverpool starting XI v. Sporting: New Reds signing set to make debut

Posted by

Liverpool new-boy Sepp van den Berg is in line to make his debut for the club tonight after finally getting international clearance.

He starts on the bench, but it’s Simon Mignolet in goal with a back-line of Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson.

In midfield, Jordan Henderson starts alongside Fabinho and James Milner. Unless I’ve got my wires crossed, and we’re playing a different formation, Gini Wijnaldum and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain start on the flanks.

Divock Origi will be hoping to continue his fine goal-scoring form as he gets the nod from Jurgen Klopp to start the game.

The Reds will be expected to make a host of changes in the second half, with most of the starting XI likely to be rotated for before the final whistle.

Adam Lallana also returns to the team after a short-term injury.
