Fabinho and Thiago start for Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp makes four changes to the side that started the win against Wolves on the final day of the Premier League season.

Both Fabinho and Thiago have won their battles with fitness to start alongside captain Jordan Henderson in midfield.

In defence, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Virgil van Dijk return after being rested, and replace Joe Gomez and the unfortunate Joel Matip.

And in attack, the talismanic Mo Salah is back. The Egyptian starts in place of Diogo Jota, and makes up a scintillating front three with Sadio Mane and Luis Diaz.

It’s the usual 4-3-3 formation for the Reds, who are are most certainly at full strength for this Champions League final.

1 Alisson; 66 Alexander-Arnold, 5 Konate, 4 Van Dijk, 26 Robertson; 3 Fabinho, 14 Henderson, 6 Thiago; 11 Salah, 10 Mane, 23 Diaz
