Arsenal lost against Everton last night and Liverpool have the chance to move back to second place in the Barclays Premier League with a win over Middlesbrough tonight.
The Reds have only earned a single point from their last two league games and they will be hoping to bounce back with all three points against Boro.
German goalie Loris Karius has been average in the last two outings and his mistakes cost Liverpool crucial points.
Therefore, it is no surprise that manager Jurgen Klopp has replaced Karius in the starting XI. In his place, Belgian international Simon Mignolet returns to the starting lineup.
Croatian central defender Dejan Lovren was substituted at half time vs West Ham because he was not feeling 100%. Surprisingly, the former Southampton star is fit to start tonight and Matip is nowhere to be found. Lovren will start with Klavan in the central defense.
Here is Liverpool’s confirmed starting XI formation vs Middlesbrough.
