Huge shock as Liverpool star fails to make starting XI against Chelsea
Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino is not part of Jurgen Klopp's squad this evening due to a minor injury.
The German lines his team out as follows:
The Brazilian attacker has failed to make the bench, with injury the cause of his absence from the side:
Firmino netted twice in the Reds' 4-1 rout of Leicester last weekend
There is one other change for the Reds as Dejan Lovren comes back in to partner Joel Matip at centre-half as Lucas drops to the bench.
Home side Chelsea, meanwhile, have made one enforced change from their 2-2 draw with Swansea on Sunday as David Luiz replaces the injured John Terry to make his second debut:
