The club’s official Twitter account revealed that Joel Matip and Thiago will start the game, which is a huge opportunity for the Reds to bounce back after their dismal 7-2 defeat to Aston Villa before the international break.
Matip has been struggling with injuries for some time and missed 20 games last season due to a knee problem, but was deemed fit enough for today’s crunch clash across Stanley Park. Meanwhile, Thiago has only featured during a 45-minute cameo against Chelsea so far, when he left many supporters stunned by his performance.
Will Liverpool beat Everton?
Unsurprisingly, many supporters went crazy after discovering Klopp’s lineup, with Joe Gomez dropping to the bench along with Diogo Jota, and Georginio Wijnaldum missing out entirely due to a minor injury.
Fans delighted as Klopp selects Matip and Thiago
Matip get innnnnnnnnn
