Confirmed: Liverpool line-up v Sion, Coutinho back on bench

Liverpool face Sion in the Europa League.

Liverpool face Sion this evening in the Europa League aiming for a confidence boosting victory.

The Reds could only manage a 1-1 draw at Anfield against the Swiss side, but this time they have Jurgen Klopp in charge as opposed to Brendan Rodgers.

Here is a look at how Liverpool line up for the fixture...

  • Simon Mignolet
  • Nathaniel Clyne
  • Kolo Touré
  • Dejan Lovren
  • Brad Smith
  • Roberto Firmino
  • James Milner
  • Jordan Henderson
  • Emre Can
  • Adam Lallana
  • Divock Origi
  • Martin Škrtel
  • Connor Randall
  • Christian Benteke
  • Ádám Bogdán
  • Jordan Rossiter
  • Philippe Coutinho
  • Cameron Brannagan

Joe Gomez and Danny Ings were among the starters in the last fixture, only to later suffer season ending injuries.

Liverpool had dominated the game at Anfield with 65 per cent possession and 19 shots at goal, but could not turn that into goals, with Adam Lallana netting their only effort.

This game is a battle for top spot, with Liverpool qualified already with nine points. A draw will be enough to see them clinch first place in their group, but with Sion just one point back, a loss would see the Reds slip to second.
