Confirmed Teams: £36m-duo dropped; Nightmare as 'amazing' Liverpool star suffers last-minute injury 'problem'

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has named a very strong team for tonight's Europa League clash with Bordeaux, and the big news (again) is that 'amazing' Reds striker Daniel Sturridge has suffered yet *another* injury.

FULL TEAM: Mignolet, Clyne, Toure, Lovren, Moreno, Lucas, Allen, Milner, Ibe, Firmino, Benteke

SUBS: Bogdan, Lallana, Can, Origi, Skrtel, Brannagan, Randall

* According The Times: "Daniel Sturridge is out of Liverpool's Europa League group game against Bordeaux due to a foot problem".

* What a ridiculous state of affairs. It appears that Sturridge has suffered another training ground injury, and who knows how long he'll be out this time.

* Seriously, it's time to sell and move on. Sturridge is a top-class goalscorer, but he is simply incapable of sustaining his fitness.

* Good to see Lallana and Can on the bench [combined cost: £36m]. To be honest, it's a surprise given Coutinho's absence, but I'll take it! Hopefully, the team will perform exceptionally well, and Lallana's bench berth will become permanent.

* Probable formation:

-------------- Mignolet
Clyne -- Lovren --- Toure ----Moreno
----Milner ---- Lucas ----- Allen
--------- Ibe -------- Firmino
-------------- Benteke
