Key Players Out, Liverpool Starting XI vs. Middlesbrough

Anfield giants Liverpool will be hoping to get their league title challenge back on track when they travel to The Riverside to play newly promoted English Premier League (EPL) side in what is a week 16 fixture.

The spotlight has been on Jurgen Klopp’s side following the not too impressive performances of their German goalkeeper Loris Karius in the last two games namely the 4-3 away loss to Bournemouth at Dean Court and the 2-2 home draw with London club West Ham United.

Due to these two games, Liverpool have fallen further behind league leaders by 6 points.

Former Borussia Dortmund and Mainz 05 boss Jurgen Klopp would be hoping his side could take the three points at stake to stay in contention for the league title.

Ahead of the clash with Aitor Karanka’s side, the Liverpool manager stated that German midfielder Emre Can and Croatian defender Dejan Lovren are a doubt for the game on Wednesday.

In the possible absence of Can, Dutch midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum is likely to join skipper Jordan Henderson and England international Adam Lallana in midfield while Estonia captain Ragnar Klavan should deputise for Lovren in the centre of defence in the event that he miss out on the game.

Possible Starting XI for Liverpool: Loris Karius; James Milner, Ragnar Klavan, Joel Matip, Nathaniel Clyne; Adam Lallana, Georginio Wijnaldum, Jordan Henderson: Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Divock Origi
