Naby Keita is fit to start while Ibrahima Konate pairs up with Virgil van Dijk as Liverpool prepare to take on Brighton & Hove Albion at Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp has made wholesale changes to the side that started in the 2-0 win over Preston North End in the Carabao Cup earlier this week as Liverpool get set to play hosts to Brighton & Hove Albion at Anfield. The shuffles start right from goal, where Alisson Becker comes in for Adrian.
The defensive line has an entirely new look as well, with Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson returning as the two full-backs. At the heart of the Liverpool backline, Ibrahima Konate pairs up with Virgil van Dijk, just as he did last weekend against Manchester United.

Up ahead in midfield, the big news is that Naby Keita is fit enough to start and has received the nod over Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. The Guinean midfielder features alongside Jordan Henderson and Curtis Jones, who is the only player retaining his spot from the midweek fixture, in the middle of the park.
Finally, the attacking unit features Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, with Diogo Jota being the unfortunate player to miss out. The Portuguese international will be one of the key options on the bench, along with Divock Origi and Takumi Minamino.
Liverpool Starting Lineup: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Konate, van Dijk, Robertson, Keita, Henderson, Jones, Salah, Firmino, Mane
