Liverpool predicted XI v Chelsea: One change, Naby Keita starts

Liverpool will look to get back to winning ways tomorrow night when they face Chelsea at Anfield in their penultimate game of the season.

The champions will finally get their hands on the trophy tomorrow evening but first Jurgen Klopp will want another three points.

Klopp won’t want his team to bow out of such a memorable season with a whimper and will want his team to defeat Chelsea.

Ahead of the game, we looked at the team which the Liverpool boss might choose tomorrow night.

In goal and back four

Alisson Becker is unlikely to miss out so should keep his place in goal for the visit of the Blues.

It also seems unlikely that Klopp will mess around too much with his back four.

Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robertson will probably all start the game.

In the middle

The performance of the £120,000-a-week star at the Emirates could see the door swing open for either Naby Keita or James Milner; with the experienced performer set to return from an injury layoff.

 

Gini Wijnaldum and Fabinho have been instrumental to Liverpool this season and both will probably get the nod to start against Chelsea.

In attack

Roberto Firmino will be desperate to finally break his Anfield goalscoring duck in the Premier League.

The Brazilian hasn’t scored a domestic home goal this season and will probably be flanked by Sadio Mane and Mo Salah.

Both Xherdan Shaqiri and Divock Origi are pushing to start but neither have really been bang in form this season.

Takumi Minamino is also in contention to continue his progress, although it is likely to be from the bench here.

Here is how Klopp’s team could line-up tomorrow:
