Minamino merits central reservation

Ian Doyle:Liverpool's squad has played their part in this Premier League triumph.

And now it's time to see what a few of them can do.

The team thumped at Manchester City needs shaking up and, with Aston Villa struggling, there's scope for some change from Jurgen Klopp.

Andy Robertson is due a break and James Milner can come in on the left, although the rest of the defence remains the same. Neco Williams can have another outing from the bench.

In midfield, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain both deserve a start, and while Fabinho has been decent since the restart, he merits a breather. Jordan Henderson skippers from the number six role.

Up top, Roberto Firmino hasn't been at it of late and Takumi Minamino needs to get a chance in his preferred central role, either side of the usual suspects.

My team (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Milner; Henderson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Keita; Salah, Minamino, Mane.

Milner and Keita get the nod

Connor Dunn: Liverpool looked out of sorts at the back against Manchester City and though that might be down to an understandable title-winning hangover, I'd look to mix things up a little bit when Aston Villa come to Anfield.

Alisson starts in goal, of course, and in the heart of defence it has to be Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk with Joel Matip injured and Dejan Lovren struggling.

On either flank though Andy Robertson is rested for me and James Milner comes in while Trent Alexander-Arnold starts with a view to give the lively Neco Williams game time later on.

In midfield, there isn't a better opportunity than this to give Naby Keita another chance to spark into life before next term so he gets the nod alongside the excellent Fabinho and relentless Jordan Henderson to show what he can do against a slightly weaker opposition.

At the head of the field it's the usual suspects to get the Reds off to a good start but Takumi Minamino could well be brought on to run between the lines and start blooding him properly ahead of next season.

My team (4-3-3): Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Milner, Henderson, Fabinho, Keita, Salah, Firmino, Mane

Time to see what Williams can do

Sean Bradbury: The time for a bit more rotation has come.

An unchanged team did not go to plan against Man City, so I would bring a few sets of fresh legs in here.

Andy Robertson remains at left-back, but will get the night off at Brighton. Alongside him today are Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez.

Neco Williams comes in on the right flank though. A home game feels like the perfect chance to see what he looks like as part of an otherwise 'first choice' defence.

In midfield changes are needed too.

Naby Keita starts, with Jordan Henderson and James Milner completing the trio.

And Roberto Firmino gets a rest up front. Takumi Minamino takes the central slot with Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah either side of him.

My team (4-3-3): Alisson; Williams, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Milner, Keita; Salah, Minamino, Mane.
