Jurgen Klopp selects an unchanged side from last week after Adam Lallana's injury continues.

Liverpool v Sunderland at Anfield

He picked up the knock during an England international friendly 10 days ago.

Daniel Sturridge missed his opportunity to get back in the starting XI after also picking up another injury during the week.  He misses out through what LFC call a 'tight calf'.

The reds can return to the top of the league if they beat Sunderland this afternoon - although Chelsea can return there later - they Spurs in the 5:30pm kick off.

Jordan Henderson makes his 250th senior career appearance today - against his old club.
