Headline news: Virgil van Dijk can put his feet up, being as he is only on the bench, because Joe Gomez, who has played one minute of first-team football since last November, is back in the starting XI. So too is Divock Origi, while Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita replace Thiago and the injured Harvey Elliott in midfield.
