Liverpool welcomes Arsenal to Anfield on Wednesday and, judging by the comments from Pep Lijnders, it could be another experimental side that start the match.
Jurgen Klopp put a big focus on his youngsters in the Reds’ third-round clash against MK Dons, with five academy players featuring, and one in Ki-Jana Hoever getting on the scoresheet.
Arsenal seem to be in a bad way on and off the field, with many fans dissatisfied with Unai Emery, and that could prompt Klopp to take a more relaxed approach when deciding his team.
That could be good news for some fo the fringe players, too, particularly midfielders Naby Keita, Adam Lallana and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who could get another chance to impress after valuable contributions in recent matches against Genk and Manchester United.
Others who should see this as a great occasion to express their ability are Dejan Lovren and Joe Gomez, who should partner each other with Virgil van Dijk likely to be missing, and with Matip also missing one of them could become a regular starter over the next few weeks.
With that under consideration, here is how we think the Reds will line-up against Emery’s side as Klopp makes ten changes to the side that beat Spurs last time out.
