Joel Matip makes his first Premier League start for Liverpool FC, whilst Coutinho recovers from a knock that kept him out of the midweek cup game.

Sadio Mane was absent from last week's Burnley game but returned in impressive form in midweek - he too is involved.

Marko Grujic, Daniel Sturridge and Lucas Leiva are amongst those making the bench.
