Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah return to an entirely new starting lineup from the midweek Carabao Cup fixture as Liverpool get set to take on Sheffield United.
Jurgen Klopp has rung in the changes for Liverpool’s latest Premier League fixture, naming a completely new starting eleven as compared to the one that took the field against MK Dons in the Carabao Cup earlier this week, as the table toppers prepare to face Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.
In goal, Adrian has replaced Caoimhin Kelleher, who goes back to being the Spaniard’s deputy. The defensive line in front of Adrian has a familiar look, with Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk and Andrew Robertson all starting against Sheffield United.

Up ahead in midfield, James Milner, Adam Lallana and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have all been relegated to the bench once again. In their stead, Fabinho, Georginio Wijnaldum and Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson form the three-man midfield partnership.
The big news in attack is that Sadio Mane and Divock Origi are fit and available to face Sheffield United. But, while Mane returns to the starting lineup to partner Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino in the three-pronged attack, Origi has to suffice with a place on the Liverpool bench.
Liverpool Starting XI: Adrian; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Wijnaldum; Salah, Mane, Firmino
