Jurgen Klopp has picked a strong Liverpool line up for the first cup game of the season.

The reds take on Championship side Burton Albion at their Pirelli Stadium.

Joel Matip comes in to replace Ragnar Klavan, whilst up front Divock Origi replaces Daniel Sturridge.

Sadio Mane returns to the reds XI after injury - with Coutinho making way.  Emre Can makes his first start of the season, partnering captain Jordan Henderson in the middle:

The reds appear to be going with a 4-2-3-1 formation for tonight's fixture.

LFC Starting XI: Mignolet, Clyne, Lovren, Matip, Milner, Henderson, Can, Lallana, Firmino, Mane, Origi

Substitutes: Manninger, Klavan, Moreno, Stewart, Wijnaldum, Ings, Sturridge

Marko Grujic was tipped to start for the reds but for reasons as yet unknown didn't make the final squad.

Burton Albion have 4 points from 4 games at the beginning of their life in the Championship.  They were automatically promoted last season under their manager, former Liverpool player, Nigel Clough.
