Colombian Luis Diaz started in attack as a left winger with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Firmino. He had 45 minutes of little activity, lacking the explosiveness of last Tuesday against Manchester United.

For the second half, Klopp changed all 11 players, and in the 77th minute made nine substitutions, with the younger players predominating. The goals came from Jordan Henderson's right-footed strike and Mohamed Salah's left-footed effort.
