Liverpool XI vs Sheffield United: Confirmed Team News

Liverpool may undergo significant changes for their upcoming match against Sheffield United, with Jurgen Klopp considering rotation.

Darwin Nunez and Konstantinos Tsimikas are set to receive a break, providing an opportunity for fringe players.

Facing Sheffield United, who might be without manager Paul Heckingbottom, Klopp may utilise this fixture to assess his squad depth.

In the absence of the injured Joel Matip, Ibrahima Konate is expected to slot into the center-back position, potentially accompanied by Joe Gomez if Tsimikas is rested.

While Curtis Jones could earn a starting position, breaking the established midfield partnership of Dominik Szoboszlai and Alexis Mac Allister presents a challenge.

Cody Gakpo is pushing for a starting role, likely leading to Darwin Nunez being rested to address missed chances.

Notably, Mohamed Salah, on the brink of his 200th Liverpool goal, is seldom rested. Luis Diaz is expected to maintain his place in the front three alongside the injured Diogo Jota.
