The Liverpool XI Klopp must pick to win at Sunderland
Liverpool will be looking to keep the pace with Premier League leaders Chelsea when they face Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Monday.
Since the disappointing 4-3 defeat to Bournemouth at the start of the month – where they were leading 3-1 before the incredible turnaround – the Reds bounced back with a draw against West Ham and then four straight wins against Middlesbrough, Merseyside rivals Everton, Stoke City and, most impressively, Manchester City.
The 1-0 victory, courtesy of Georginio Wijnaldum’s header, may be looked back on as a vital win come the end of the season, with the Reds having kept themselves just six-point behind Chelsea at the top, while moving four ahead of Manchester City.
They face a Sunderland side who come into the fixture in not particularly good form after a 3-1 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford on Boxing Day and worrying 4-1 battering at fellow relegation battlers Burnley.
