Though Jurgen Klopp will be without some key players like Thiago Alcantara, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Harvey Elliott, the German tactician is still expected to name a very strong starting XI as he has a lot of quality players at his disposal.

In this article, we'll be looking at how Jurgen Klopp could set up his side ahead of the game. Check it out below:

Formation

Jurgen Klopp is expected to stick with his usual 4-3-3 formation with Alisson Becker lining up in the goal.
