Summer signing Adam Lallana makes his Liverpool debut against Aston Villa at Anfield this evening, with fellow new recruits Mario Balotelli, Lazar Markovic and Alberto Moreno also making their first appearances at home.
Kopites can take a first look at the former Southampton midfielder in red as the England international returns to full fitness after missing the entirety of pre-season and the start of the new campaign with injury.
Balotelli and Moreno are handed maiden run-outs in L4 after initial starts for the club at Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City respectively, while Markovic is selected in Brendan Rodgers' XI for the first time.
Joe Allen and Daniel Sturridge are two who miss out for fitness reasons, and Philippe Coutinho is also brought back into the side as Raheem Sterling is included among the substitutes.
