4-3-3 Liverpool Predicted Lineup Vs Stoke City:Mohamed Salah out to create Epl History to himself





Liverpool will entertain Stoke City at Anfield on Saturday afternoon looking to earn a positive result on the day, which will help them close the gap to the second spot in the league table. The Reds are in sensational goal-scoring form but they have also been leaking goals at the back. Hence, it is expected that it will be a high-scoring game against the Potters, who are fighting for their top-flight lives going into the final stretch of the campaign. Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is expected to make some changes for this encounter with one eye on their UEFA Champions League second leg clash versus AS Roma next week. He might opt to stick with his 4-3-3 formation and start with Danny Ings up top while Ben Woodburn takes his place in the Reds midfield.

Defence

Loris Karius is expected to start in goal for the home team while Simon Mignolet has to be content with a place on the bench. The German shot-stopper might be protected by a back four of Ragnar Klavan and Virgil Van Dijk in central defence while Alberto Moreno starts in the left-back position and Joe Gomez is deployed on the right-hand side of the backline. Both Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson might be rested for this contest after playing the full 90 minutes versus AS Roma on Tuesday night. Jurgen Klopp will be hoping that his defenders can keep it tidy at the backline versus the Potters on Saturday so that they have a good chance of securing the three points at Anfield which will help them consolidate their position in the top 4.

Midfield

The trio of Georginio Wijnaldum, Ben Woodburn and Jordan Henderson could be deployed at the centre of the park and the performance of these players will be highly significant if the Merseyside outfit are to break down the Stoke City defence at Anfield. James Milner could be available for a place on the bench for this encounter against Paul Lambert’s side.

Attack

The front three would consist of Danny Ings spearheading the Reds attack while Sadio Mane looks to use his pace and guile down the left-hand side of the Reds attack. Mohamed Salah will start on the right flank and will hope to get his name on the scoresheet once again as he chases down Ian Rush’s incredible 47 goals in a single season record for Liverpool.
Roberto Firmino and Dominic Solanke could be available on the bench and might come on during the clash if needed.
