Liverpool’s lineups will have a familiar look and feel when it competes in the 2015-16 UEFA Europa League.
Liverpool submitted a 21-man Europa League squad to UEFA on Wednesday, European soccer’s governing body announced on its website. The likes of Christian Benteke, Philippe Coutinho and James Milner headline the Reds’ squad, which also includes injured striker Daniel Sturridge but not outcast defender Jose Enrique.
Let’s take a look at the squad:
Goalkeepers: Simon Mignolet and Adam Bogdan
Defenders: Nathaniel Clyne, Kolo Toure, Dejan Lovren, Joe Gomez, Mamadou Sakho, Alberto Moreno, Martin Skrtel
Midfielders: James Milner, Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino, Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana, Lucas (Leiva), Emre Can, Joe Allen
Forwards: Christian Benteke, Daniel Sturridge, Divock Origi, Danny Ings
Homegrown players Jordon Ibe and Jordan Rossiter appear on Liverpool’s B-List, meaning they’re eligible to play in the group stage due to their ages (born after Jan. 1, 1994) and the length of their associations with the club.
Liverpool will face French club Bordeaux, Russian club Rubin Kazan and Swiss side Sion in the group stage. Liverpool opens group-stage play on Sept. 17 at Bordeaux. The Reds conclude the round-robin phase of the tournament Dec. 10 with a visit to Sion.
