Sweeping changes, 27-year-old starts: Predicted Liverpool lineup v Leipzig

Liverpool lineup against RB Leipzig this week needing a win. The Reds need to stay in the Champions League if they want any chance of qualifying for next season’s competition. The Reds hold a 2-0 away goal lead heading into the second leg at the Puskas Arena. We expect sweeping changes. Here is our predicted Liverpool lineup to face RB Leipzig:

Goalkeeper: Alisson Becker

The Brazilian isn’t to blame for our recent collapse. He isn’t doing much wrong at all, he needs some stability in front of him.

Right back: Trent Alexander-Arnold

The Scouser in our team should return to the lineup for the big game. We missed him at the weekend.

Centre back: Fabinho

The Brazilian will surely return to the side and as much as we’d love to see him in the midfield we expect him at the back.

Centre back: Ozan Kabak

The February signing is also expected back in the side, he has some knowledge of the Leipzig attack having taken them on in the Bundesliga.

Left back: Andy Robertson

Andy Robbo was ineffective at the weekend, he could have more joy if Leipzig go gung ho.

Centre midfield: Curtis Jones

The Scouser was left out at the weekend, hopefully to keep him fresh for the task ahead this week.

Centre midfield: Thiago

Some have questioned the Spaniard’s abilities in recent weeks, he’ll show up in the big game though.

Centre midfield: Gini Wijnaldum

The first name on the team sheet, perpetually available.

Right wing: Sadio Mane

The Senegal winger has been in poor form lately, not finishing or creating enough. He’ll turn it around soon.

Left wing: Diogo Jota

Roberto Firmino was absent from training so we doubt he’ll be returning to action this week, Jota should keep his place as a result.

Striker: Mo Salah

The Egyptian King netted the opener in the first leg, he’ll be hungry for more.
