Stars return – Liverpool’s strongest possible 4-3-3 XI vs Lyon

Liverpool have had an average pre-season campaign so far in which they have failed to win in their past four encounters.

Next up, the Reds will face French side Olympique Lyon in their last pre-season game of the summer.

The Merseysiders will collide against PL champions Man City in the Community Shield contest on Sunday and therefore, Klopp should look to prepare his team by playing the strongest possible side vs the Ligue 1 club tomorrow.

The good news for Liverpool is that five first team stars have returned and are available to feature vs Lyon. The likes of Keita and Shaqiri have recovered from their respective injuries, on the other hand, Firmino, Alisson and Salah have returned after their extended break (LFC).

Alisson could start in the goal in place of Mignolet, who has leaked a lot of goals in the pre-season. In the back-line, Alexander-Arnold and Robertson should start in the full-back positions and the likes of Matip and Van Dijk should start in the central defense.

As far as the midfield is concerned, Wijnaldum, who started in the attack against Napoli, should start in the center of the park with the likes of Fabinho and skipper Henderson.

In the attack, Origi might start on the left flank in the absence of star winger Sadio Mane, who is expected to return after the Community Shield game vs the Sky Blues. Salah could start on the right wing and Firmino might get the nod to start as the main striker up front.
