The Merseysiders have stated that Cameroonian star, Joel Matip, could return to action. We take a look at how Liverpool would line up vs Shrewsbury:

Defense and GK

If Kelleher is available then we can expect him to start in the goal. He did brilliantly in the last league game vs Chelsea in the absence of Alisson Becker. In front of the young shot-stopper, Matip may partner Joe Gomes in the central defense.

As far as the fullback positions are concerned, Neco Williams could replace Trent Alexander-Arnold to start in the RB role, on the other hand, Robertson could return from suspension to start in the left back position.


In the center of the park, the likes of Curtis Jones, Tyler Morton and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could replace the senior players in the starting XI.


With Salah and Mane on international duty, the likes of Kaide Gordon and Takumi Minamino could get the nod to start in the wide attacking positions. In the False No. 9 role, Roberto Firmino might return in place of Diogo Jota.

Here is Liverpool’s probable 4-3-3 starting XI vs Shrewsbury:
