Liverpool ripped Hoffenheim apart in the play off round of the Champions League to qualify for the group stages.
The Reds will collide against Sevilla in the opening group game. Not to forget, the Spanish side defeated the Merseysiders in the Europa League final two years ago.
As far as Klopp’s team news is concerned, star playmaker Philippe Coutinho should finally return to the Liverpool first team after taking part in the pre-season fixtures.
To include the Brazilian in the starting XI, the German manager should make a slight change in his usual 4-3-3 formation. Klopp should use a 4-2-3-1 formation and Coutinho must play in the attacking third in the No.10 role behind compatriot Firmino. Mane and Salah will likely start on the wings again.
Karius should return in place of Mignolet in the goal. As far as the defense is concerned, the likes of Gomez, Lovren and Robertson should return to the starting XI as well.
Here is Liverpool’s strongest possible 4-2-3-1 XI vs Sevilla.
