Liverpool's new signing Alisson Becker gets to make his first LFC appearance this evening against Napoli.

The friendly in Dublin comes one week ahead of the opening Premier League weekend of the 2018/19 season.

The Brazilian became the world's most expensive goalkeeper when the reds pounced in July to bring him to Anfield.

He returned to training last Monday at Liverpool's training camp in France, alongside his countryman Roberto Firmino.

Firmino is also named in the starting line up, reuniting with Sadio Mane and Mohammed Salah.  Both Joel Matip and Adam Lallana are unavailable with what have been termed minor injuries.  Liverpool's Naby Keita also gets a start in the side alongside James Milner - both Fabinho and Shaqiri are part of the extensive substitutes tonight.

After tonight's game the reds return to Liverpool - with one more friendly pencilled in on Tuesday night against Torino at Anfield.

Liverpool team: Alisson, Clyne, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson, Wijnaldum, Milner, Keita, Salah, Mane, Firmino.

Subs: Karius, Fabinho, Sturridge, Moreno, Shaqiri, Origi, Solanke, Phillips, Jones, Kelleher, Camacho, Alexander-Arnold.
