Confirmed – Liverpool XI Formation vs Hull City

Liverpool collide against Hull City today and manager Jurgen Klopp has selected a very strong starting XI.

Star attacker Sadio Mane returns to the starting lineup for the first time since returning from the AFCON. Moreover, this is the first time since November 2016 that the likes of Mane, Lallana, Coutinho and Firmino are starting together.

Wijnaldum scored for the Reds against Chelsea in the last game but the Dutch international starts on the bench today. Lallana, Can and Hendo start in the midfield.

As far as the defense is concerned, Klavan is ill and Lovren has a knee concern. In such a scenario, Lucas Leiva starts in the central defense with Joel Matip.

Retired England international James Milner will make his 50th league appearance for the Merseysiders. As expected, the former Man City star will play in the left fullback position.

Here is Liverpool’s confirmed XI formation vs Hull City.

    That is an absolutely disgraceful and pathetic performance. All eleven players and including the subs should have pay docked. How in the hell do you have 80% of possession in the second half and cannot do anything with it. Now 11 corners in the second half alone and still cannot find the net. People say you cannot blame Klopp. Something is very wrong at present. Very wrong and Klopp does not seem to have any real idea of how to fix it. Add to that zero activity in the transfer window. I am running out of ways to rationalize the results and how to move forward.

    Solanke is expected to leave Chelsea
    following the expiration of his contract in
    the summer, having failed to earn an
    extension.

    Liverpool are currently linked with a summer
    move for Leicester ‘keeper Kasper
    Schmeichel, but what do Liverpool fans
    think about the possibility of a deal?
    On Monday, Sky Sports claimed:
    “Liverpool and Arsenal will go head-to-head to
    sign Kasper Schmeichel in the summer. Jurgen
    Klopp will move to sign him after inconsistent
    play from current options”.
    Soon after, UK bookmakers installed
    Liverpool as 2-1 favourites to sign £30m –
    rated Schmeichel, and Reds fans appear to
    be in favour of the deal. I conducted a poll
    this week asking fans if Liverpool should
    sign ‘ fantastic ‘ Schmeichel. The result:
    * 61% of participating fans voted YES to the
    transfer.
    Schmeichel literally has the same stats as
    Simon Mignolet (both have conceded a goal
    every 78 minutes), but a better comparison
    may be last season, when Schmeichel was
    at the top of his game.
    * Schmeichel: 40 goals conceded in 40 apps
    (One every 90 mins). 15 clean sheets (One
    every 240 mins)
    * Mignolet : 59 goals conceded in 55 apps
    (One every 85 mins). 20 clean sheets (One
    every 250 mins)
    Again, Schmeichel’s primary stats are not
    much better than Mignolet’s, but like his
    Manc father, Schmeichel is – according to
    Ranieri – a ‘ fantastic leader, and a vocal
    presence at the back, two qualities Liverpool
    desperately need. Last month, Leicester
    defender Wes Morgan enthused:
    “He [Schmeichel] is very vocal and is always on
    our cases to make sure that we are in the right
    positions”.
    I’ve never heard a Liverpool player say the
    same about Simon Mignolet. £30m is an
    unrealistic transfer fee, but if Leicester get
    relegated (or finish very low in the table),
    their bargaining position will be reduced as
    Schmeichel will almost certainly want to
    leave.
