The Reds boss has kept the Senegal star in reserve and is boosted by the presence of the England midfielder on the bench

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is rotated into Liverpool’s starting line-up, with Sadio Mane among the substitutes at Bournemouth and Adam Lallana returning to the matchday squad.

Jurgen Klopp has made four changes to his XI, with the England international coming in for the Senegalese speedster and Jordan Henderson replacing a suspended Emre Can in midfield.

Joe Gomez switches in for Trent Alexander-Arnold at right-back and Simon Mignolet returns in goal having been on the bench in the goalless draw against West Bromwich Albion due to a knock.

Lallana, meanwhile, is involved for just the second time this season following injury issues, having been a late substitute against Chelsea on November 25.

Danny Ings, also on the bench, makes the 18 for a third occasion in the campaign.

Liverpool starting XI: Mignolet, Gomez, Lovren, Klavan, Robertson, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Coutinho, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Salah, Firmino

Liverpool subs: Karius, Alexander-Arnold, Milner, Lallana, Mane, Solanke, Ings
