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.
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
