Liverpool predicted lineup vs Inter - Champions League

1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Alisson (GK) - One of the best goalkeepers in the world will be hoping for a quiet evening, but is unlikely to get one.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (RB) - Expect the flying right-back to exploit the space in behind Ivan Perisic, though don't be surprised if the Croatian returns the sentiment.

Joel Matip (CB) - Slightly has the edge over Ibrahima Konate in the centre-back pecking order right now.

Virgil van Dijk (CB) - The Dutchman will be keen to get one over compatriot Stefan de Vrij in the blue-and-black corner.

Andy Robertson (LB) - See Alexander-Arnold's paragraph, but make it about Denzel Dumfries instead.


2. Midfielders

Fabinho (DM) - While there have been plenty of rotating pieces in Liverpool's midfield this season, Fabinho has usually been the constant.

Jordan Henderson (CM) - The club captain and the man for the big occasions.

Thiago (CM) - Look, if Thiago is only going to be capable of playing about 12 games a season, this is definitely one you'd want him to be starting.


3. Forwards

Diogo Jota

Mohamed Salah (RW) - The Egyptian is currently three goals behind Sebastien Haller in the race for the Champions League Golden Boot.

Diogo Jota (CF) - Liverpool missed the Portugal forward from the off at the weekend and should be restored to the starting lineup.

Sadio Mane (LW) - The man of the moment will be hoping to strengthen his Ballon d'Or credentials with Champions League glory.
