Confirmed Liverpool line-up v Plymouth: Three strikers among nine changes
By Dominic Toner
Liverpool have made nine changes to their starting XI for the away match against Plymouth on Wednesday night.
The Reds travel to Home Park to face the League Two opposition in a FA Cup third-round replay after failing to win the first meeting at Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp has decided to make nine alternations to his team from the side that drew 1-1 with Manchester United on Sunday.
The German manager has decided to name a very attacking line-up with three strikers Daniel Sturridge, Divock Origi and Ben Woodburn all starting.
Liverpool have announced their starting line-up on their official Twitter account.

Origi and Trent Alexander-Arnold are the only survivors from the draw at Old Trafford at the weekend.
Loris Karius, Joe Gomez, Lucas, Alberto Moreno, Kevin Stewart, Ovie Ejaria, Philippe Coutinho, Woodburn and Sturridge have come into the side.
Simon Mignolet, Dejan Lovren, Ragnar Klavan, James Milner, Georginio Wijnaldum, Jordan Henderson, Emre Can, Roberto Firmino and Adam Lallana have been rested.
Liverpool will start the game as strong favourites to progress, but were unable to defeat Plymouth in the previous game at home.
Klopp fielded an experimental side in that match and they struggled to break down a stubborn Plymouth defence in a goalless draw.
The winners of Wednesday’s replay have a home match against Championship side Wolves in the fourth-round of the FA Cup.
Plymouth will be hoping to cause a huge upset in front of their own supporters and can be encouraged by the fact that Liverpool are without a win in their last four games across all competitions.
