Predicted Liverpool Line-up To Face Sevilla In Champions League
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool face the toughest test of their UCL campaign this week when they travel to Ramon Sanchez Stadium on Tuesday. The Reds have now won each of their last four games with a 3-goal margin but face a side that has not lost at home for almost a year. The La Liga outfit are fresh from a victory at the weekend and will be high on confidence coming into this game.
However, Liverpool have found some momentum recently and are surely going to push for all three points. Even a draw in this game will push them into the knockout stage of the competition and Klopp should field a fairly strong side here.
The Reds will be without full-back Nathaniel Clyne and centre-half Joel Matip, both of whom have not travelled with the squad. Young Joe Gomez is back in the squad after being rested at the weekend.
Manager: Jurgen Klopp
GK – Loris Karius
The German international has been preferred over Mignolet in the European competition and should keep his place against Sevilla.
RB – Joe Gomez
After being rested at the weekend, Gomez is back in the squad and is expected to start at right-back for Liverpool yet again.
CB – Dejan Lovren
With Joel Matip out, Lovren, who had a decent time at the weekend, should start as the senior CB for Liverpool, for the second game running.
CB – Ragnar Klavan
Keeping the CB partnership from the last game intact, Liverpool should go with Klavan for this crucial Champions League fixture.
LB – Alberto Moreno
Facing his former side for the fourth time after leaving them, Moreno, who recently became a proud father, will be raring to go and continue his impressive run of form.
CDM – Jordan Henderson
The skipper was back in action after an injury, at the weekend, and is expected to keep his place as the deepest of the midfielders for Liverpool.
CM – Emre Can
Pushing Wijnaldum on to the bench should be Emre Can, who is expected to add mettle to the Liverpool midfield.
CM – Philippe Coutinho
The Brazilian is one of the most productive players in the PL and will be the danger man for Liverpool in this clash.
RW – Mohamed Salah
With 14 goals already for the Reds, Salah, who also scored against Sevilla in the first leg, will hope to add to his tally and keep the incredible run going.
LW – Sadio Mane
Though he has not been at his best in the last couple of games, Mane still remains one of the most important players for Liverpool and should start on the left-hand side of the attack in Liverpool’s trip to Spain.
ST – Roberto Firmino
One of the most underrated players in the current Liverpool squad, Firmino is rated well by the manager, who should stick with him to lead the line yet again.
