Joel Matip returns to the Liverpool starting line-up for this afternoon’s Premier League clash with Swansea City at Anfield.

The defender makes his first appearance since November 29 after recovering from an adductor issue that had ruled him out of the Reds’ last six outings.

Matip is one of four changes Jürgen Klopp makes as Trent Alexander-Arnold, Georginio Wijnaldum and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain also come back into the XI.

Philippe Coutinho is captain.

Liverpool: Mignolet, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Klavan, Robertson, Can, Wijnaldum, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Coutinho, Salah, Firmino.

Subs: Karius, Lovren, Gomez, Lallana, Mane, Milner, Solanke.
