Liverpool are playing a patient game in the transfer market, meaning their squad isn't markedly different from last season.

Kostas Tsimikas has been the sole summer arrival but he will only be back up to Andy Robertson at left-back, meaning there's unlikely to be sweeping changes to the team from last season.

As they prepare for the arrival of Marcelo Bielsa's Leeds side, the line-up is pretty set. The back five will be Alisson, Trent Alexander-Arnold (who was an injury doubt but who recovered to participate for England in the Nations League), Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk and Robertson.

Ahead of them, Jordan Henderson is still injured, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will be out for the rest of the month with a knee problem. Fabinho will start in the centre with Naby Keita on one side and Georginio Wijnaldum on the other, with Jurgen Klopp having confirmed that the relationship with the midfielder is fine despite links to Barcelona.

The front three continue to pick themselves, with Mo Salah and Sadio Mane hoping to pick up from where they left off, while Roberto Firmino will be desperate to add a few more Premier League goals to his game this season.

James Milner and Takumi Minamino will be in contention and will likely play some part in the game.
