Goalkeeper: Alisson Becker

The Brazilian won’t have a tremendous amount to do but his distribution could prove vital for rare counter attacks.

Right back: Trent Alexander-Arnold

The Scouser will be looking to drop balls behind the West Brom defence. It could be one of his final games as our primary playmaker with Thiago nearing a return.

Centre back: Fabinho

The Brazilian is one of the best one on one defenders in the world. He shouldn’t have to prove it today.

Centre back: Joel Matip

The Cameroonian starts this afternoon, perhaps indicating he’ll sit out of the Newcastle United tie.

Left back: Andy Robertson

Andy Robbo, published author, is one of our players of the season so far. Another top performance is inevitable.

Centre midfield: Curtis Jones

The Scouser is utterly undroppable at the moment. We expect another commanding display in the middle.

Centre midfield: Gini Wijnaldum

The Dutchman is nearing a Liverpool exit with no progress reported on his contract. He’ll show us what we’re set to be missing today.

Centre midfield: Jordan Henderson

The skipper will be barking orders and encouragement and keeping the intensity as high as usual.

Right wing: Mo Salah

Mo scored will want to start making headway in the Golden Boot race, his brace last time out helped.

Left wing: Sadio Mane

Sadio was fuming at being substituted against Crystal Palace. He’ll take the bull by the horns today.

Striker: Roberto Firmino

The Brazilian is back to his very best and we can’t wait to see what he’s got in store for us today.
