Liverpool confirmed team to face Bournemouth: Fabinho returns as Milner drops out

Jurgen Klopp makes one change to his starting XI as Liverpool look to bounce back from defeat to Manchester United.

Fabinho returns to the starting XI as Liverpool seek their first Premier League win of the season against Bournemouth.

The Brazilian was a surprise omission from Jurgen Klopp’s team to face Manchester United at Old Trafford on Monday - a game that ended in a 2-1 defeat.

However, he is restored for the visit of Scott Parker’s side, taking the place of James Milner in midfield.

The Reds are otherwise unchanged as Klopp looks for his team to show improvement without major alterations in terms of personnel.

Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Elliott, Fabinho, Henderson; Salah, Firmino, Diaz.

Subs: Adrian, Davies, Milner, Tsimikas, Carvalho, Clark, Bajcetic, Phillips, Van den Berg.

Bournemouth: Travers, A Smith, Mepham, Senesi, Zemura, Christie, Lerma, Tavernier, Cook, Anthony, Moore.

Subs: Solanke, Marcondes, Neto, Stacey, Pearson, Hill, Billing, Bevan, Saydee.
