Jordan Henderson is fit to start while Fabinho misses out as reigning Premier League champions Liverpool prepare to take on Leeds United at Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp has made a few alterations to the side that started in the FA Community Shield tie against Arsenal last month, as Liverpool begin the defence of their Premier League crown. First up against the Reds are Leeds United, who are back in the top-flight after 16 years.
At the back, there are no surprises whatsoever, with Alisson Becker in goal while Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk and Andrew Robertson lining up in the four-man backline for Liverpool. The first bit of eyebrow-raising decisions comes in midfield.

The big news is that Jordan Henderson is fit to start. The Liverpool captain could be sitting at the base of the three-man midfield, with Fabinho relegated to the bench. Henderson is joined in the middle of the park by Georginio Wijnaldum and Naby Keita, with former Leeds United midfielder James Milner a substitute as well.
Finally, in attack, the first-choice trio of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane start once again. Divock Origi and Takumi Minamino are the backup attacking options for Liverpool, with Curtis Jones, Joel Matip and Adrian the other substitutes.
Liverpool Starting Lineup: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, van Dijk, Robertson, Wijnaldum, Henderson, Keita, Salah, Firmino, Mane
