Jurgen Klopp has rung in the changes, with Takumi Minamino making his Liverpool debut as the Reds get set to take on Everton in the FA Cup third round.
Jurgen Klopp has made wholesale changes to the side that beat Sheffield United in the Premier League earlier this week, as Liverpool prepare to lock horns with Everton at Anfield in the FA Cup third round.
The changes come into effect right at the back, with Adrian replacing Alisson Becker in goal. Joe Gomez is one of only two players across the pitch who retains his place in the starting lineup, with Nat Phillips starting alongside him at the heart of the Liverpool defence.

The other player keeping his place is James Milner, who drops into defence. Milner starts as Liverpool’s right-back, with Neco Williams deployed on the left flank. In midfield, Adam Lallana is the experienced figure, with Pedro Chirivella and Curtis Jones for company in the three-man unit.
Up ahead in attack, the big news is that Klopp has handed Takumi Minamino his Liverpool debut. By the looks of the lineup, Minamino will lead the line against Everton, with Divock Origi and Harvey Elliott flanking him. Rhian Brewster is only fit to start on the bench, where he has the fit-again Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sadio Mane for company.
Liverpool Starting XI: Adrian; Milner, Gomez, Phillips, Williams; Jones, Lallana, Chirivella; Elliott, Minamino, Origi
