Klopp names attacking Liverpool line-up

Liverpool need goals at the Bernabeu this evening, and Jurgen Klopp has named his team accordingly.

Mo Salah, Darwin Nunez, Cody Gakpo and Diogo Jota all start for the Reds, who need to claw back a three-goal deficit from the first leg.

The inclusion of Jota is one of two changes that Klopp makes from the team he sent out at Bournemouth on Saturday.

The Portuguese ace comes in alongside veteran James Milner with youngsters Harvey Elliott and Stefan Bajcetic dropping out, the latter due to injury.

UEFA believe it will be the usual 4-3-3 setup for the Premier League side, although BT Sport suspect a 4-2-3-1 with Jota leading the line.

Liverpool (4-3-3): 1 Alisson; 66 Alexander-Arnold, 5 Konate, 4 Van Dijk, 26 Robertson; 20 Diogo Jota, 3 Fabinho, 7 Milner; 11 Salah, 27 Nunez, 18 Gakpo

Subs: 13 Adrian, 62 Kelleher, 2 Gomez, 8 Keita, 9 Firmino, 15 Oxlade-Chamberlain, 17 Jones, 19 Elliott, 21 Tsimikas, 28 Carvalho, 32 Mattia, 46 Williams
