Predicted Liverpool line-up to play Rubin Kazan: Strong side from Klopp

Anfield Pitch

Here is how we predict Liverpool and Rubin Kazan will line up for this week’s match:

To be played on Thursday 22nd October 2015 at 19:05. Venue: Anfield Stadium,

Odds: Liverpool 1/2, Draw 3/1, Rubin Kazan 6/1

Liverpool welcome Russian side Rubin Kazan to Anfield on Thursday evening for their latest Europa League match.

Jurgen Klopp could not inspire a victory in his first match as Reds manager, when his side drew 0-0 with Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, so you can rest assured he will be hoping to go one better later this week.

Liverpool are currently second in Group B having drawn against both Bordeaux and FC Sion under former manager Brendan Rodgers.

Despite that they are only two points off top spot and a victory against Rubin Kazan will swiftly turn things around.

In early team news, Liverpool are without Danny Ings, Joe Gomez, Jordan Rossiter, Roberto Firmino, Jordan Henderson and Jon Flanagan, while they have minor doubts regarding Christian Benteke, Daniel Sturridge and Dejan Lovren.

Rubin are currently 12th in their domestic league and bottom of their Europa League group, so Liverpool will be quietly confident of ensuring Klopp is victorious in what will be his first match at Anfield.
