Jurgen Klopp is hoping Liverpool can get the better of Bayern Munich at Anfield tonight

Roberto Firmino starts for Liverpool against Bayern Munich at Anfield tonight in the Champions League Round of 16 clash.

The Brazilian star missed training on Monday with a virus but doubts were eased when he was spotted at Anfield earlier today.  

He already has 11 goals this campaign and has is one of the players Bayern fear most ahead of the two-legged tie. Firmino scored in the Champions League group stage games against both Paris Saint-Germain and Red Star Belgrade and some of his best performances this season have come in this competition.

Liverpool are already without several players for the tie which could force some significant changes. Although normally a midfielder, Fabinho is will play in defence covering for the suspended Virgil van Dijk while Joe Gomez remains sidelined with a broken leg. 

Bayern Munich boss Niko Kovac has concerns of his own with Thomas Muller, Arjen Robben and Corentin Tolisso all missing. 

Liverpool team: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Fabinho, Robertson, Wijnaldum, Henderson, Keita, Mane, Firmino, Salah
