Jurgen Klopp has revealed Joel Matip will miss the match, as he joined Philippe Coutinho on the sidelines. agnar Klavan should start in an unchanged back four alongside Nathaniel Clyne, Dejan Lovren and James Milner, then, while Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana appear to be certain starters in midfield. Emre Can and Daniel Sturridge are vying for recalls to the starting XI and may be selected ahead of Georginio Wijnaldum and Divock Origi, respectively.
