CONFIRMED: Liverpool line-up – Front three of Moses, Suarez and Sturridge

Sunderland Stadium of Light

Here is the Liverpool line-up for this afternoon’s match against Sunderland:

Starting XI: Mignolet, Toure, Sakho, Skrtel, Enrique, Henderson, Lucas, Gerrard, Moses, Suarez, Sturridge

Subs: Jones, Agger, Aspas, Ilori, Sterling, Ibe, Wisdom

Liverpool go to the Stadium of Light this afternoon hoping to climb up to second in the Premier League.

Having made his first-team comeback in last week’s League Cup match at Old Trafford, Luis Suarez now returns to league football hoping to reignite a Liverpool side who have faltered in recent weeks after an outstanding start.

Brendan Rodgers will be without Philippe Coutinho, Glen Johnson, Daniel Agger and Aly Cissokho; while Sunderland’s caretaker boss Kevin Ball has a full squad apart from Steven Fletcher.

Liverpool have lost three times in 12 Premier League trips to Sunderland, but they are the only occasions the Black Cats have beaten the Reds in 23 top flight outings.

What do you think the result will be this afternoon?
