Jurgen Klopp has made three changes to his starting line-up for Liverpool’s Champions League semi-final first leg against Villarreal.
With his side having claimed a 2-0 Merseyside derby victory over Everton last time out, the German has looked to freshen things up in defence, midfield and attack.
As has become customary during two-game weeks this season, Ibrahima Konate comes into the centre of defence to replace Joel Matip.
In the centre of the park, the captain Jordan Henderson takes the place of Naby Keita.
And up top, January signing Luis Diaz joins Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, with Diogo Jota dropping to the bench.
Roberto Firmino is not among the substitutes as he recovers from injury, while Curtis Jones and Kostas Tsimikas are both out with illness.
Liverpool: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Thiago, Henderson, Salah, Mane, Diaz.
