Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp has selected an attacking team for tonight's Europa League final against Sevilla, with the 11 revealed around an hour before kick-off.

Liverpool team (4-2-3-1): Mignolet; Clyne, Toure, Lovren, Moreno; Can, Milner; Lallana, Firmino, Coutinho; Sturridge.

Substitutes: Ward, Skrtel, Lucas, Allen, Henderson, Benteke, Origi.

Attacking side includes Brazilian and English duo's

As expected, the front four selected by Klopp include Adam Lallana, Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho, who will start in an attacking three behind lone frontman Daniel Sturridge.

Further back, James Milner partners Emre Can in a midfield pivot. Milner captain's the side for the match, although it's believed that Jordan Henderson will lift the trophy should the Reds win.

A few weeks ago Can wouldn't have been considered for selection, having sustained what many though was a season ending injury against Borussia Dortmund, but he made a speedy recovery for the semi final second leg against Villarreal.

With Mamadou Sakho still suspended, Dejan Lovren and Kolo Toure are the centre-back's, Simon Mignolet, Nathaniel Clyne and Alberto Moreno making up the three remaining spots. 

Origi and Henderson boost bench

There was some fairly big news regarding the bench, as Divock Origi makes the squad after proving his fitness in training session's building up to the game. The aforementioned Henderson is also on the bench, alongside some other experienced names such as Martin Skrtel and Lucas Leiva.

It's widely thought that it could be the last appearance in a Liverpool matchday squad for a few names this evening, such as Skrtel. Another man that could be on his way out is Christian Benteke, who also finds himself on the bench. Joe Allen too, has been rumoured with a move. The final man on the bench, Danny Ward, is expected to go out on loan next season.
