Without further ado. The teams are up!

Liverpool's starting XI is: Mignolet, Clyne, Toure, Lovren, Moreno, Lucas, Allen, Milner, Lallana, Coutinho, Firmino.

Substitutes: Ward, Benteke, Sturridge, Skrtel, Ibe, Smith, Chirivella.

So it's Toure who comes in to play with Lovren--that was a big question in the buildup to the match.

Villarreal: Asenjo, Mario, Bailly, Ruiz, Costa, Jonathan dos Santos, Bruno, Pina, Denis, Soldado and Bakambu.

The surprise to me here is that Areola isn't in goal.  Other than that, I was expecting Pina and Costa, and not surprised at Musacchio on the bench.
