We’re predicting there’ll be five changes to the Liverpool XI this evening that will take on Genk in the Champions League.
Joe Gomez will come in for Trent Alexander-Arnold at right-back, with the scouser left at home with a virus.
Dejan Lovren will replace Joel Matip whose knee has flared up again.
Naby Keita and James Milner will play alongside Fabinho, enabling captain Jordan Henderson and Dutchman Gini Wijnaldum a rest – considering both played 180 minutes on international duty and looked cooked v Manchester United.
Then, we’re hoping Mo Salah will have overcome his ankle injury to start, having trained normally…
So, if we’re right, Jurgen Klopp’s starting XI will look like this:
Alisson; Gomez, Lovren, van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Keita, Milner; Salah, Mane, Firmino
However, other possibilities include James Milner at right-back, with one of Hendo or Gini keeping their place in the central three.
If Salah isn’t ready to play from the outset, Klopp could field either Adam Lallana, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain or Divock Origi in the side and switch to a 4-2-3-1.
Which team we go with, it should be enough to beat the underperforming Belgians who are sixth in their league and lost at the weekend.
Nothing less than two victories in our back to back games with them is acceptable, really.
