Roberto Firmino and James Milner return, while Georginio Wijnaldum drops out as Liverpool get set to take on Arsenal at the Emirates.
Jurgen Klopp has made two changes to the side that started in the 1-0 win over Wolves last time out in the Premier League, as Liverpool prepare to lock horns with Arsenal at the Emirates. As expected, there are no shuffles in goal, where Alisson Becker is a certainty.
The defensive line remains unchanged as well, with Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson being the two full-backs, while Ozan Kabak and Nathaniel Phillips continue their partnership at the heart of Liverpool’s backline.

Up ahead in midfield, the first change sees James Milner being a surprise starter ahead of Georginio Wijnaldum. The veteran Englishman has Thiago Alcantara and Fabinho for company in the middle of the park, with Wijnaldum, Naby Keita, Curtis Jones and former Arsenal star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain being backup midfield options.
Finally, in attack, the first-choice trio reunites, with Roberto Firmino fit to start. Firmino comes into the side in place of Diogo Jota, with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane retaining their spots in the final third. Jota will undoubtedly come off the bench later on in the game.
Liverpool Starting Lineup: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Phillips, Kabak, Robertson, Thiago, Fabinho, Milner, Mane, Salah, Firmino
