James Milner replaces Trent Alexander-Arnold as Liverpool prepare to take on FC Porto in a UEFA Champions League Group B tie at Estadio do Dragao.
Jurgen Klopp has made just one change to the side that started in 3-3 draw with Brentford in the Premier League as Liverpool get set to lock horns with FC Porto at Estadio do Dragao in a UEFA Champions League Group B encounter.
There are no shuffles in goal, where Alisson Becker remains the undisputed first-choice. The first and only change comes in defence, with James Milner coming in for the unavailable Trent Alexander-Arnold at right-back. On the opposite, flank, Andrew Robertson retains his spot while Joel Matip and Virgil van Dijk continue their partnership at the heart of the Liverpool defence.
Trent misses out with a sore groin.

Up ahead in midfield, Curtis Jones has earned a start for a third successive game, with the young midfielder starting alongside Fabinho and captain Jordan Henderson in the three-man unit. The good news pertaining to midfield is the return of Naby Keita, who will be an option off the bench.
Finally, in attack, Roberto Firmino is the unlucky one to miss out, with the Brazilian international named among the substitutes. So, Diogo Jota keeps hold of his place in the side, with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane being the two wide men.
Liverpool Starting Lineup: Alisson, Milner, Matip, van Dijk, Robertson, Henderson, Fabinho, Jones, Salah, Jota, Mane
