Liverpool possible line-up vs Sparta Prague – as Jurgen Klopp is set to make seven changes to the Liverpool line-up, including handing out a debut to a new player…



Liverpool’s anticipated starting lineup against Sparta Prague is expected to undergo significant changes, as Jurgen Klopp introduces a new player to make his debut.


This alteration comes as part of seven overall changes to the team. The match, taking place at Anfield tonight at 20:00 GMT, holds great importance for Liverpool as they aim to secure a spot in the quarter-finals of the Europa League.


The Reds are currently in a commanding position in the last-16 tie following their impressive 5-1 victory over the Czech side in the first leg at the Letna Stadium last week. It would take a significant collapse for Jurgen Klopp’s team to be eliminated from the competition.


Despite this, Klopp is not overlooking Sparta, as they showed promise in the initial encounter. The manager is keen for Liverpool to maintain their momentum and form as they aim for success in multiple competitions.


However, Klopp is mindful that certain players will need rest, particularly with the squad dealing with ongoing injury problems. Ibrahima Konate is likely to be sidelined again after his injury in the first leg against Sparta, while Curtis Jones, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Diogo Jota, and Alisson Becker are still unavailable. With an upcoming FA Cup quarter-final against Manchester United on Sunday, Klopp may opt to keep some players fresh for that crucial match.


Taking all of this into consideration, here is the predicted Liverpool lineup to face Sparta Prague:


Goalkeeper – Fabian Mrozek

Caoimhin Kelleher may require a break, both mentally and physically, especially since he will be representing the Republic of Ireland next week. Adrian is the next option, but Klopp might see this as an opportunity to give 20-year-old Mrozek some playing time.


Right Back – Conor Bradley

Despite a lack of alternatives, the 20-year-old performed exceptionally well against City. Therefore, Bradley may have to continue playing without being rested.


Center Back – Jarell Quansah

Quansah delivered his best performance to date against City, surpassing all expectations at the age of 21.


Center Back – Joe Gomez

Liverpool’s versatile player could have a chance to impress in his preferred position.


Left Back – Kostas Tsimikas

Having recovered from a broken collarbone last month, the Greek international is ready to seize his latest opportunity.


Central Midfield – James McConnell

Klopp praised the 19-year-old as a delight to watch during pre-season, and he has already made eight appearances for the first team this season.


Central Midfield – Dominik Szoboszlai

As the Hungary international took part in pre-match media duties, it strongly suggests that he will be in the starting lineup.


Central Midfield – Bobby Clark

Highly regarded by Klopp and his coaching staff, the 19-year-old made a significant impact off the bench in the first leg against Sparta.


Right Wing – Mo Salah

Klopp has confirmed that Liverpool’s talisman is ready to start games again, and this match provides the perfect opportunity for Salah to continue building his fitness.


Striker – Cody Gakpo

As the most frequently used forward this season with 40 appearances, Gakpo has featured in every European game so far, showcasing his versatility.


Left Wing – Kaide Gordon

After missing the entirety of last season, the 19-year-old has been working on regaining his fitness with the under-21s. Both Luis Diaz and Darwin Nunez deserve a rest, making Gordon a suitable choice.
