Liverpool take on the mighty Real Madrid in this weekend’s Champions League final, with both sides highly unlikely to deviate from the aggressive, attacking style of play that has taken them this far. Expect fireworks.

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has some big decisions to make about who to pick in Kiev, with Gareth Bale, Lucas Vázquezand Isco all in contention to start alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema.

However, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has a settled starting XI and far less of a tactical headache. The Reds have only one gear – full throttle – and he knows that his best chance of a world famous victory will be through outscoring their illustrious opponents.

He could yet spring a surprise in the middle of the park, while an untimely injury may well force his hand. But The Independent understands Klopp is already settled on his Champions League XI.

Liverpool (Likely starting team): Loris Karius; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, Dejan Lovren, Andy Robertson, James Milner, Jordan Henderson, Georginio Wijnaldum, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah
