Confirmed Liverpool-XI: Klopp finally drops £26m misfit; 'sensational' youngster starts; Brazilian replaces Hendo

Rejoice! Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has finally dropped underperforming attacker Adam Lallana from the starting lineup.

If only that were true, though. It's more likely that Lallana is being rested, and I have no doubt he'll return for the next match.

Still, it's a great chance for the allegedly 'sensational' Jordon Ibe to stake his claim for a regular start, and if he plays well, hopefully he'll keep Lallana on the bench.

FULL TEAM: Mignolet, Clyne, Sakho, Lovren, Moreno, Can, Lucas, Firmino, Coutinho, Ibe, Benteke.

SUBS: Bogdan, Toure, Lallana, Allen, Brannagan, Smith, Randall

WEST HAM: Adrian, Tomkins, Collins, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Kouyate, Lanzini, Noble (c), Antonio, Valencia, Carroll

SUBS: Randolph (GK), Jenkinson, Obiang, Song, Payet, Zarate, Jelavic

Dimitri Payet returns for West Ham, but luckily, he's on the bench. Andy Carroll starts for the Hammers, and he'll definitely be up for the game.

Unfortunately, I have a feeling he's going to have a field day against Lovren and Sakho.
