Adam Lallana and Joe Gomez return while Adrian starts in goal as Liverpool get set to take on Chelsea in the FA Cup fifth round at Stamford Bridge.
Jurgen Klopp has made seven changes to the side that started in the 3-0 defeat to Watford in the Premier League as Liverpool prepare to lock horns with Chelsea in the FA Cup fifth round tie at Stamford Bridge. The very first change comes in goal, with Adrian coming in for Alisson Becker.
Defence sees a couple of changes, with Virgil van Dijk and Andrew Robertson the ones keeping hold of their spots. Joe Gomez returns at the heart of the Liverpool defence, while Neco Williams replaces Trent Alexander-Arnold in the right-back slot, completing the backline that will protect Adrian.

Up ahead in midfield, Fabinho retains his place in the side. However, Georginio Wijnaldum and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain drop out, with Adam Lallana and Curtis Jones starting in their stead. Jones and Lallana will reprise the no. 8 roles, while Fabinho will be at the base of the three-man unit.
Upfront, the three-pronged attack also sees a couple of changes, with Sadio Mane the only one who also started this past weekend. Former Chelsea winger Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, though, have made way for Takumi Minamino and Divock Origi.
Liverpool Starting Lineup: Adrian, Williams, Gomez, van Dijk, Robertson, Lallana, Fabinho, Jones, Mane, Minamino, Origi
