Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has decided to rest a whole host of first-team players ahead of the daunting fixture against Real Madrid tonight.
aptain Steven Gerrard is among notable omissions, with central defender Martin Skrtel taking over the skipper's armband.
Raheem Sterling, Philippe Coutinho and Dejan Lovren also miss out as Kolo Toure, Lucas Leiva and Lazar Markovic come into the team.
Emre Can also gets the nod in the middle of the park ahead of Jordan Henderson.
Rodgers says he has confidence in those players who will step in, but they face a buoyant Real Madrid for whom Cristiano Ronaldo is seeking to create history by breaking Raul’s goalscoring record.
Liverpool team to face Real Madrid: Mignolet, Manquillo, Toure, Skrtel, Moreno, Lucas, Can, Allen, Lallana, Markovic and Borini
