Jurgen Klopp faces Roberto Firmino decision as Naby Keita change reflects – .


Naby Keita starts in midfield for Liverpool as Roberto Firmino is named in the lead in place of Diogo Jota at Watford.
Jota was taken out of the Portugal squad earlier this week and is on the bench in Hertfordshire, but it is the Brazilian striker who is preferred after playing his part in a full week of training at the AXA Center.

Trent Alexander-Arnold is also coming back to the side after missing the last two games before the international break with a groin injury and he’s named in the last four along with Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip and Andy Robertson.

As expected, Caoimhin Kelleher starts in the goal in place of Alisson Becker, who flew directly to Madrid from South America after being named to the Brazil squad which played in the early hours of Friday morning. .

Alisson, alongside Fabinho, traveled directly to the Spanish capital ahead of Tuesday night’s Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid to avoid UK quarantine laws that could have jeopardized their participation.

With Curtis Jones and Thiago Alcantara also excluded, it’s Keita who is named in the middle of the park with captain Jordan Henderson and James Milner.

Liverpool : Kelleher ; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson ; Henderson, Milner, Keita ; Salah, Firmino, Mané.
