Jurgen Klopp is likely to start with his preferred starting lineup but Coutinho might not start considering he has been linked with Barcelona move and rumours just won’t go away. Muhammad Salah has started his Liverpool career in flying colours scoring twice already in as many games and should start against Bayern.
