Liverpool, who won four of their last four games on the trot, have made a number of changes.
With Joel Matip and Ragnar Klavan unavailable, midfielder Emre Can partners Dejan Lovren in central defence while Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson start on the flanks for the Reds.
Sadio Mane is on the bench as Jordan Henderson, Georginio Wijnaldum and James Milner feature in midfield behind a front trio of Mohamed Salah, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino.
Jurgen Klopp’s side, fourth in the league table, can momentarily overtake third-placed Arsenal if they beat Brighton as the Gunners do not play till later on Saturday.

Liverpool: Mignolet, Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Can, Robertson, Henderson (c), Wijnaldum, Milner, Salah, Coutinho and Firmino.
