Jurgen Klopp has the chance to guide Liverpool to their first Cup final since 2012. The Reds take on Stoke in Capital One Cup Semi Final second leg tonight, with a trip to Wembley awaited them.
Ahead of the kick-off, we take a look at the Predicted Liverpool lineup vs Stoke for the Capital One Cup Semi Final second leg.
Predicted Liverpool lineup vs Stoke
Klopp will not take any chances for this game as he is ware of the outcome if results go south. Reds already have a 1-0 lead going in to this game and given Stoke’s attacking threat going forward, he would want to play a stronger team tonight.
The only real change would see the back of Jon Flanagan, in absence of Nathaniel Clyne. Flanagan (also known as the Red Cafu), is recently back from his long-term injury, and there will not be a better time to make his return as he looks to guide his team to a cup final.
Front three at the moment for Liverpool pick themselves up as Firmino-Lallana combination is working to the best and in James Milner, Liverpool will have the calming influence in midst of all the attacking brilliance.
Midfield will see Lucas-Henderson-Can combo put up once again, as frankly, Klopp does not have better options at present. Liverpool manager will be delighted to see Sakho and Toure be fit for this one and give his side an assured look going in to the crucial Semi Final.
