Liverpool adopts Middlesbrough at Anfield


Liverpool adopts Middlesbrough at Anfield in a duel at the closing round in the Premier League. Merseyside need the victory to secure a place in the top 4 and the resulting participation in the Champions League next season. The Reds have a chance even for the third place if Manchester City does not win the three points in Watford’s visit.

If Liverpool succeeds, it will only be the second time in the last eight seasons when the team ends in the top 4. Middlesbrough has already dropped and will play in the Championship next season.

Arsenal will also track the outcome of Anfield, as “gunners” hope for Liverpool’s wrong move to replace Merseyside in fourth place. The Spots accept Everton to the Emirates.

Host manager Jurgen Klop has made only one change in his lineup – Roberto Firmino has been restored and started instead of Diver Origins. Daniel Sturridge retains his place in the title lineup. Grant Ledbury and Rudy Jested start for Boro at the expense of De Roon and Alvaro Negredo.

Liverpool: Minhole, Klein, Lovren, Matip, Milner, Zhang, Wainlidum, Lalana, Kouttinho, Firmino, Sturridge

Middlesbrough: Gusan, Fabio, Chambers, Gibson, Fredd, Clayton, Icebird, Forshoe, Downing, Bamford, Frost
