Roberto Firmino is passed fit to start for Liverpool as they welcome Middlesbrough.

Roberto Firmino has been passed fit to start for Liverpool as they welcome Middlesbrough to Anfield this afternoon.

The Brazilian missed last weekend's 4-0 victory at West Ham United with a muscle injury but replaces Divock Origi in one change from manager Jurgen Klopp.

Phillipe Coutinho, Daniel Sturridge and Firmino lead the line for the Reds this afternoon, safe in the knowledge that a victory will secure them Champions League football next season.

Emre Can, Georginio Wijnaldum and Adam Lallana continue to patrol the midfield, while Nathaniel Clyne, Joel Matip, Dejan Lovren and James Milner make up the back four.

For relegated Boro, Steve Agnew makes two alterations from the 2-1 loss to Southampton eight days ago as the club play their final game in the Premier League.

Patrick Bamford - who scored his first Premier League goal last time out - is joined in the front three by Stewart Downing and the returning Rudy Gestede, with Alvaro Negredo dropping to the bench.

The other change comes in midfield as Grant Leadbitter replaces Marten de Roon alongside Adam Clayton and Adam Forshaw.

Fabio, Calum Chambers, Ben Gibson and George Friend continue in the back four ahead of Brad Guzan between the sticks.

Liverpool: Mignolet; Clyne, Matip, Lovren, Milner; Can, Wijnaldum, Lallana; Coutinho, Firmino, Sturridge
Subs: Karius, Moreno, Alexander-Arnold, Klavan, Lucas, Grujic, Origi

Middlesbrough: Guzan; Fabio, Chambers, Gibson, Friend; Clayton, Leadbitter, Forshaw; Downing, Bamford, Gestede
Subs: Dimi, Ayala, Bernardo, De Roon, Fischer, Stuani, Negredo
