Liverpool will play their fourth game in Europa League tonight against Rubin Kazan away at Russia. 

The Reds are still in search of their first win in the competition after 3 draws in three games. But, a lot of changes happened to the team after the appointment of Jurgen Klopp as manager in place of Brendan Rodgers.

The two sides finished in a 1-1 draw at Anfield last month with Rubin playing most of the game with 10 men seeing their defender sent off. 

Liverpool’s 3-1 win against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last week gave the fans a new belief that they can turn around their season and it can be the start of a new era.

Liverpool team news:

Liverpool have a lot of injury concerns at the moment with key players like Daniel Sturridge, Joe Gomez, Danny Ings, Jordan Henderson, Jon Flanagan, Jordan Rossiter, Kolo Toure injured out. But Klopp is likely to field a strong starting XI against the Russian side tonight to get the best result possible in order to qualify for the knockout stage of the competition. Connor Randall was not included in the provisional squad due to a knock.

Joao Carlos Teixeira, who had a brilliant game for the Reds in League Cup is unavailable for selection as Rodgers did not register him in UEFA list at the start of the season. The same goes for Jose Enrique.

 

 

Liverpool predicted starting XI-

Goalkeeper: Simon Mignolet

The Belgian is likely to keep his place under the bar.

Right back: Nathaniel Clyne

Clyne is likely to keep his place.

Centre backs: Martin Skrtel and Mamadou Sakho

The centre back pair is likely to be unchanged.

Left back: Alberto Moreno

Moreno will be keeping his place for sure.

Central midfielders- Emre Can and Lucas Leiva

Can and Lucas will also keep their places.

Attacking midfielders: Adam Lallana, Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho

The trio are in good form and did well against Chelsea when Benteke came on for Milner and created well. They are likely to start again together.

Striker: Christian Benteke

Benteke is likely to start the game as Klopp will be desperate for a win.
