Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp names Naby Keita and Roberto Firmino in the starting lineup for Saturday lunchtime's Premier League clash with Watford.

Liverpool duo Naby Keita and Roberto Firmino have both been named in the starting lineup for Saturday's Premier League early kickoff against Watford.

Jurgen Klopp is being forced to work around the absences of Alisson Becker and Fabinho due to their late returns from South America, while Harvey Elliott and Thiago Alcantara remain sidelined with injuries.

Diogo Jota was also not expected to make the first XI after an injury scare during the recent international break, and Firmino will make just his second Premier League start of the season at Vicarage Road.

Caoimhin Kelleher makes a highly-anticipated start in goal as Alisson prepares for Tuesday's clash with Atletico Madrid, while Trent Alexander-Arnold has been passed fit to start at right-back.

Keita is joined in the midfield three by Jordan Henderson and James Milner, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain warming the bench amid links with a move back to Arsenal.

Mohamed Salah will aim to break a personal goalscoring record this afternoon, while Sadio Mane also starts as he goes in search of his 100th Premier League goal.

Liverpool starting lineup: Kelleher; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Milner, Keita; Salah, Firmino, Mane
