Liverpool were rocked 90 minutes before kick off by the announcement that Mamadou Sakho had failed a 'A' drugs sample by UEFA.

Although the player has not been found guilty yet of any misdemeanour Liverpool FC voluntarily decided to take the player out of team selection whilst the matter was ongoing.

It was another enforced change for the manager who saw Divock Origi stretchered off in midweek.

Connor Randall replaces Clyne at right back with Stewart coming into midfield to replace Lucas Leiva.  Sturridge starts his 5th consecutive Premier League game up front.  Kolo Toure is drafted in to replace Mamadou Sakho.
