Goalkeeper: Alisson Becker

The Brazilian has kept back to back clean sheets, he’ll be looking to reclaim his Golden Glove.

Right back: Trent Alexander-Arnold

The Scouser in our team has started the campaign in sensational form, he’ll show us why he’s better than Reece James.

Centre back: Virgil van Dijk

The Dutchman will have a task on his hands keeping Romelu Lukaku at bay but we’re confident he will.

Centre back: Joel Matip

The Reds’ most memed player will need to be on the top of his game against one of the world’s best.

Left back: Andy Robertson

The Scotland captain returns to the fold after an injury lay off, he’ll have James pegged back.

Defensive midfield: Fabinho

The Lighthouse is a major question mark, we’re hoping he’s up to playing – if not it would be totally understandable.

Centre midfield: Jordan Henderson

The skipper lines up alongside Thiago Alcantara and Fabinho to create the best midfield we’ve seen during the Jürgen Klopp era.

Centre midfield: Thiago

Thiago broke the record for passes completed in one half when he debuted for the Reds against Chelsea last season, we’ll be expecting similar dominance this weekend.

Right wing: Mo Salah

The Egyptian King put in another strong performance last weekend but he didn’t get his goal, that’ll put some fire in his belly.

Left wing: Sadio Mane

Sadio fired home from close range after Trent Alexander-Arnold’s cute pass last weekend. Another goal wouldn’t go amiss.

Striker: Diogo Jota

The Portugal forward just keeps scoring so he just keeps starting.
