Fabinho starts in midfield as Liverpool take on RB Leipzig, hoping to preserve their two goal advantage to advance through to the next round of the UEFA Champions League.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has made five changes from the defeat to Fulham, for the upcoming game against RB Leipzig in the UEFA Champions League.
Fabinho steals the headline with a start in central midfield, after a long time. He renews his partnership alongside Georginio Wijnaldum and Thiago Alcantara at the base of Liverpool’s 4-3-3.
The young Curtis Jones and former RB Leipzig star Naby Keita serve as potential alternatives in the middle of the park, for the home side.

In addition, Klopp has been reinforced by the return of Ozan Kabak, who is set to operate at centre-back alongside the inexperienced Nat Phillips while Trent Alexander-Arnold replaces Neco Williams. He and Andrew Robertson occupy the fullback position, with Alisson starting in goal as well.
Meanwhile, in the attacking unit, Liverpool are still without Roberto Firmino, which paves the way for Diogo Jota to start once again. He is set to spearhead the frontline for the Reds, with additional support from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.
Liverpool XI Vs Leipzig: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Kabak, Phillips, Robertson; Thiago, Fabinho, Wijnaldum; Jota, Salah, Mane
