Roberto Firmino returns to the Liverpool line up after missing last weekend's win over West Ham through injury.

He replaces Divock Origi in the starting line up alongside Daniel Sturridge.

The reds face already relegated Middlesbrough this afternoon in the final day televised game.

A victory will ensure the reds will return to the Champions League in either the final play off stage or the group stage dependent on other results.

The full Liverpool team is:

Mignolet, Clyne, Matip, Lovren, Milner(c), Can, Wijnaldum, Lallana, Coutinho, Firmino, Sturridge

Subs: Karius, Moreno, Alexander-Arnold, Klavan, Lucas, Grujic, Orig

Middlesbrough: Guzan, Fabio, Chambers, Gibson, Friend, Clayton, Leadbitter, Forshaw, Downing, Bamford, Gestede
Subs: Dimi, Ayala, Bernardo, De Roon, Fischer, Stuani, Negredo.

The reds start the day in 4th place with just a one point advantage over Arsenal who also play at home against Everton.
