Jurgen Klopp makes nine changes for Liverpool's Europa League clash with Union Saint-Gilloise as Trent Alexander-Arnold returns for his first start in more than a month

Trent Alexander-Arnold has returned to the Liverpool starting line-up for their Europa League clash with Union Saint-Gilloise.

The defender was back in action off the bench during Saturday’s controversial 2-1 defeat to Tottenham after missing three weeks with a hamstring injury.

Alexander-Arnold is joined in defence for the clash at Anfield by Ibrahima Konate, promising centre back Jarell Quansah and Kostas Tsimikas.

Alisson lines up in goal, with the Brazilian replacing Caoimhin Kelleher, who started their previous group stage game against LASK but is absent this time with a knee injury.

Summer signings Wataru Endo and Ryan Gravenberch are complemented by Harvey Elliott in midfield as Jurgen Klopp makes nine changes from the Spurs clash for the game against the Belgian side.
