Jurgen Klopp could make nine changes to the starting XI for Liverpool’s FA Cup tie against Plymouth Argyle on Sunday.

Sheyi Ojo could start in attack after he was ruled out for almost three months with a back fracture in the summer.

Ragnar Klavan and Emre Can are the only players expected to retain their places in the starting XI.

A whole host of academy stars are expected to feature while a number of first team regulars could be given a rest by the manager after he made just one change against Sunderland despite playing two matches in three days.

Klavan may be forced to line-up at centre-back because he remains one of the freshest players in the squad and Joel Matip has been absent for the last five matches through injury.

He could be joined by senior figure Lucas while Dejan Lovren sits out.

Can could retain his place in midfield but Giorginio Wijnaldum and Jordan Henderson are expected to sit out so he could be joined by academy graduate Kevin Stewart who was on the bench against Sunderland.

Divock Origi could start up front after coming on as a substitute for the 2-2 draw on Monday but Daniel Sturridge is likely to be named on the bench.

Youngsters Ben Woodburn, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Ovie Ejaria are all expected to start after impressing in the recent cup fixture against Leeds.

Alberto Moreno is also likely to come back into the side at left-back. He has made just five starts in all competitions this season and he has made only two substitute appearances since the end of November.

Loris Karius is expected to be named ahead of Simon Mignolet in goal.
