Reds manager Jurgen Klopp has indicated he will be making changes for a game that takes place between their two Europa League semi-final clash with Villarreal.

"We have to respect the intensity of the last game and think about the line-up," Klopp said. "A 12 o'clock kick off? I can't believe it. We got home at 3.30am on Friday, and I guess no one slept straight away. On Sunday all English people will have lunch while we play football. It is my first time with a 12 o'clock kick-off. Who made this decision?"

Klopp switched his side around for the league games that took place after both legs of Liverpool's Europa League quarter-final against Borussia Dortmund earlier this month. He made 10 changes against Bournemouth that followed the first leg, and seven for the game against Stoke.
