Team News: Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson named on bench for Europa League final

Jordan Henderson is named on the Liverpool bench for the Europa League final against Sevilla.

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has been named on the bench for tonight's Europa League final against Sevilla in Basel.

It was touch and go whether or not the midfielder would start for Jurgen Klopp after he came on as a substitute against West Bromwich Albion at the weekend, but he has to settle for the bench.

Divock Origi, who has been out for a lengthy spell with injury, has also been included as one of the substitutes, with Daniel Sturridge taking the starting spot up front.

As expected, Alberto Moreno starts against his former club, while Adam Lallana, Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho provide attacking threat behind Sturridge.

As for Sevilla, who are hunting for their third consecutive Europa crown, head coach Unai Emery has not selected Yevhen Konoplyanka to start.

Kevin Gameiro does get the nod to start, though, and he will draw level as top scorer if he manages to get a hat-trick in tonight's match.

Liverpool: Mignolet; Clyne, Toure, Lovren, Moreno; Can, Milner; Lallana, Firmino, Coutinho; Sturridge
Subs: Ward, Benteke, Henderson, Lucas, Allen, Origi, Skrtel

Sevilla: Soria; Mariano, Rami, Carrico, Escudero; N'Zonzi, Krychowiak; Vitolo, Banega, Coke; Gameiro
