Divock Origi is a shock starter for Liverpool in Sunday’s Premier League clash against Crystal Palace.

Jurgen Klopp has stuck with the front six who romped to a convincing 3-0 win over Manchester City in midweek.

This means there is no place in the starting X1 for star duo Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho, who are on the substitute’s bench for the lunchtime fixture at Selhurst Park.

Jurgen Klopp’s team selection is likely to have been made with half an eye on the titanic Europa League first-leg clash against Manchester United next Thursday.

He has made two changes from the side that beat City, with first-choice right-back Nathaniel Clyne replaced by Alberto Moreno and fit-again Mamadou Sakho coming in for Dejan Lovren.

Adam Lallana has retained his place in the team after his outstanding display in midweek, when he scored one and created the other two goals.

Liverpool have managed two successive league wins for the first time since December and will be aiming for three on the spin for the first time this season to keep their distant hopes of a top-four finish alive.
