Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp names an unchanged team for tonight's Champions League playoff first leg against Hoffenheim in Germany.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has named an unchanged team for tonight's Champions League playoff first leg against Hoffenheim in Germany.

It had been suggested that Klopp could tweak his team following Saturday's 3-3 draw against Watford in the Premier League, but the same XI will take to the field as Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah are selected alongside Roberto Firmino in the final third.

Philippe Coutinho has not travelled amid reports of interest from Barcelona, while Nathaniel Clyne's continued absence means that there is another start at right-back for Trent Alexander-Arnold.

As for Hoffenheim, on-loan Bayern Munich attacker Serge Gnabry starts in a wide position, while 29-year-old striker Sandro Wagner will lead the line.

There is also a spot in the home side's starting XI for former Leicester City attacker Andrej Kramaric.

Hoffenheim: Baumann; Zuber, Hubner, Bicakcic, Vogt, Kaderabek; Gnabry, Demirbay, Rupp, Kramaric; Wagner
Subs: Kobel, Nordtveit, Toljan, Amiri, Uth, Szalai, Geiger

Liverpool: Mignolet; Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Matip, Moreno; Henderson, Can, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane
Subs: Karius, Klavan, Gomez, Milner, Grujic, Solanke, Origi
