Goalkeeper: Alisson Becker

Alisson starts his first Champions League game of the season having missed out due to injury.

Right back: James Milner

Trent Alexander-Arnold is missing with a virus, Milner is more than comfortable at full back – expect a professional display.

Centre back: Dejan Lovren

Joel Matip is missing with a knee injury so Lovren is back in the Liverpool lineup to face Genk.

Centre back: Virgil van Dijk

Virgil had a strong partnership with Joe Gomez before the England international broke his leg, here’s hoping they rekindle their understanding.

Left back: Andy Robertson

With the Reds set to dominate possession, the flying Scotsman will be marauding down the flank.

Raphinha, Coutinho and Tielemans: The signings Liverpool could make this summer

Defensive midfield: Fabinho

With a more attacking midfield in play, Fabinho will be giving his teammates license to roam forward.

Centre midfield: Naby Keita

After coming on against United, Keita played well enough to warrant a place in the Liverpool lineup against Genk.

Centre midfield: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

The England midfielder will be hoping to recover the form he showed before his lengthy injury spell.

Right wing: Mo Salah

The Egyptian king was absent at the weekend but he is back in the Liverpool lineup to face Genk.

Left wing: Sadio Mane

Whilst he failed to net against Man United at the weekend, Mane is nailed on for a goal tonight. The Ballon d’Or contender will be too much for their leaky defence.

Striker: Roberto Firmino

We will need Bobby at his brilliant best tonight in order to seal a win that will put goal difference out of the final equation for the group.
