The reds have made one change from the side that played last week in Germany.

Liverpool face Augsburg tonight in the second leg at Anfield with all to play for.  The first leg ended 0-0 a week ago.

All the pre-match talk had centred around Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge, who has spent most of the last 2 years plagued by repetitive soft tissue injuries.  Criticism of the player's injury record was rumoured to be behind a potential exit - something the player went on to deny.

If tonight's game is level after 90 minutes then a 30 minute period of extra time will be played.

Away goals count both at full time AND after extra time.

Lucas Leiva replaces Kolo Toure and will play at centre-back alongside Mamadou Sakho.

LFC Team:

Mignolet; Clyne, Lucas, Sakho, Moreno; Can, Henderson, Milner; Firmino, Coutinho, Sturridge.

Subs: Ward, Toure, Benteke, Origi, Smith, Teixeira, Chirivella.

Augsburg Team:

Hitz; Verhaegh, Janker, Klavan, Stafylidis; Kohr, Esswein, Koo, Altintop, Werner, Caiuby.

Bench: Manninger, Opare, Parker, Moravek, Bobadilla, Max, Rieder.

The reds will be hoping to get through unscathed - this game coming less than 3 days before the League Cup Final at Wembley where the reds will face Manchester City.
