Roberto Firmino for Divock Origi is the only change for Liverpool as they get set to take on Tottenham Hotspur in the UEFA Champions League final.
Roberto Firmino had been struggling with a minor muscle injury for the last few weeks but has proven his fitness to return to the starting lineup. The Brazilian replaces Divock Origi, who was one of the heroes of Liverpool’s miraculous comeback in their UEFA Champions League semi-final against Barcelona.
Firmino has Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane for company in the attacking unit, with the former looking to exorcise the bad memories from last year’s final against Real Madrid. There are no other changes in the side to face Tottenham apart from Firmino’s return.

In the middle of the park, Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum will be the two box-to-box midfielders, while Fabinho will continue to reprise his role of the Anchor Man, screening the Liverpool defensive line.
At the back, Joel Matip continues as Virgil van Dijk’s partner at the heart of the Liverpool defence. Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson are the two full-backs while Alisson Becker starts in the Liverpool goal and will aim to keep the Tottenham attackers at bay.
