      Gerrard gives out his message to us and the team
      https://static.xx.fbcdn.net/rsrc.php/v2/y4/r/-PAXP-deijE.gif

      Goodluck Liverpool Fc, Make us dream!

      Starting XI: Mignolet, Clyne, Skrtel, Lovren, Gomez, Henderson, Milner, Lallana, Ibe, Coutinho, Benteke

      Subs: Bogdan, Toure, Firmino, Moreno, Can, Origi, Ings

      Christian Benteke leads the attack for Liverpool as they kick off their 2015-16 Barclays Premier League campaign against Stoke City today.

      The Belgian striker makes his competitive debut for the Reds at the Britannia Stadium, as do Nathaniel Clyne, Joe Gomez and James Milner.

      Roberto Firmino is among the substitutes as Brendan Rodgers' side look to secure three points in their opening encounter of the new season.

      Sakho not among the LFC subs as he's missed training this week after the birth of his baby.

      It's the team that most predicted. Sakho not even on the bench, that's a surprise. I'm sticking to my earlier prediction of a 2-1 victory.

      Sakho not among the LFC subs as he's missed training this week after the birth of his baby.

      After looking on his Twitter page only last night I should have remembered that.
      Frankly, Mr Shankly

      Strong team, looking forward to Coutinho/Ibe/Lallana and their relationship with one another and Benteke.

      Baffled as to why Lovren starts perhaps it's because Gomez is more familiar to playing alongside him. Hope Lovren proves me wrong and has a good game.

      Come on you reds 2-0 for me.

      EDIT - Ignore the Lovren stuff

      Big game for all players but bigger for Lovren, Gomez and Benteke for different reasons.

      Lovren and 4-2-3-1!

      I want my badge now Debs! :)

      Now enough of that sh*t, let's see the future captain prove he's ready to turn over a new leaf, Benteke bang in a hat-trick and get ourselves top of the league come 6pm, thanks!

      Team as most predicted, think we will see Firmino last 15/20 dependant on how many we are leading by at the time,

      Can see Can on too especially if things do not go to plan, anyhoo what I'd like is for ppl to get off Lovrens back, I to favour Sakho but let's get behind Dejan and the rest of our lads,

      Can only see a reds win, 1-3

      Pretty much the team think most people expected, the odd selection aside.
      Not much left to say.
      Can't wait to get it started :)

      Oh Jesus.

      No specialist to screen the back 4. Looks like all out attack.... I'm actually quite worried :(

      Also, no Lucas, Sakho and Markovic on the bench with 3 forwards on the sub bench :S

      Firmino isn't exactly a forward of sorts.

      Extra incentive,  Arse got gubbed by the bubble blowers, we got Arse next away match, let's get ahead of them by winning today then put a six point gap between us when we beat them too,

      Arsenal lost, Chelsea drew, Spurs lost.

      Week one but already a great opportunity to get a head start.

      He can play #10, inside forward, 2nd striker & false 9, but I think his best position is 2nd striker, so I consider him a forward :)

      Why Moreno is getting dropped ? Although he made some silly mistakes but he provides some good crosses and very good attacking minded player.

      Gomez looked solid pre season.
