Fixture: FC Augsburg vs Liverpool
Competition: Europa League
Kick-off: 20:05 (UK time)
Liverpool have officially confirmed their starting line-up and substitutes for this evening's Europa League round of 32 tie first leg against German Bundesliga outfit FC Augsburg at the WWK Arena.
Reds manager Jurgen Klopp, who is returning to his native country for the first time since taking over at Liverpool in October, names Daniel Sturridge to spearhead the attack, supported by Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino. James Milner, Emre Can and Jordan Henderson will look to dominate in midfield, while the central defensive pairing is Kolo Toure and Mamadou Sakho.
On the bench Klopp can turn to Christian Benteke if he needs to throw on another striker, while Divock Origi and Jordon Ibe are further attacking options. Lucas Leiva is also on the bench.
Liverpool, well off the top four pace in the Premier League, are eyeing winning the Europa League as a route into next season's Champions League and will be keen to record a positive result this evening to take back to Anfield.
