Confirmed Liverpool vs. Nottingham Forest: Gomez starts at right-back amid 7 changes – Liverpool FC

Another big game awaits Liverpool on the eve of the international break, with a place in the FA Cup semi-final on the line, and Jurgen Klopp has made seven changes to his XI.

The Reds were last in action four days ago, with a significant 2-0 over Arsenal another injection of the feel-good factor as the gap to the top in the league was reduced to just one point.

But now all attention is back on the cup, with this a must-win to ensure Liverpool return from the break with all three competitions still on the spin.

The manager spoke of his desire to have a side “fresh enough, physically and mentally, for the game and really is going for it” in the build-up and now it’s time to show that on the pitch.

Alisson remains in goal and is to sit behind Joe Gomez, at right-back, Ibrahima Konate, Virgil van Dijk and Kostas Tsimikas.

In midfield, Fabinho is in his usual No. 6 role next to Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
