Liverpool host Stoke City in the second leg of their Capital One Cup tie. The Reds have the advantage after beating the Potters 1-0 away from home.
Manager Jurgen Klopp has named a strong starting XI and has made only two changes in the team that started against the Canaries last weekend in the Premier League.
Jon Flanagan starts his first game for the club after returning from his 18 month injury. The Anfield faithful will be delighted to see him start tonight. The England international replaced summer signing Nathaneil Clyne and will play as the right full back.
On the other hand, Jordon Ibe finds himself on the bench tonight and he has been replaced by former Southampton captain Adam Lallana in the starting XI. Lallana scored the 95th minute winner against Norwich last Saturday.
Lucas will make his 300th appearance for the Reds tonight. Dejan Lovren returns from his injury to take place on the bench.
Here is Liverpool’s confirmed starting XI formation vs Stoke City.
