Liverpool Confirmed Lineup vs Red Bull Salzburg: Gomez in for Matip; No other changes

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has made just the one change to the side that started at the weekend for their Champions League clash against Red Bull Salzburg.

Liverpool have made a solitary change to their lineup as they gear up to face Austrian giants Red Bull Salzburg in their second Group E clash of the 2019-20 UEFA Champions League clash at Anfield.

The change is an enforced one that comes in defence as Joel Matip is ruled out with an injury. Starting in place of the Cameroonian centre-half is Joe Gomez, who will be making just his sixth appearance of the new season. Virgil van Dijk partners the England international at the heart of the Liverpool defence. Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson continue as the full-backs.

There are no changes in the middle of the park either with Fabinho continuing as the holding midfielder, supported by Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum. Naby Keita starts on the bench and will be hoping to get some minutes against his former club.

Another former Red Bull Salzburg star Sadio Mane starts on the left-side of the Liverpool attack, while his usual partners in crime, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah, also start as expected. Divock Origi provides Klopp additional option in attack from the bench.

Liverpool Confirmed XI: Adrian; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane
