Liverpool v Stoke City line-ups - Jon Flanagan makes a long-awaited comeback

Jurgen Klopp and Mark Hughes have both rung the changes ahead of the Capital One Cup semi-final second leg between Liverpool and Stoke City.

The most eye-catching change is the return of Jon Flanagan, who makes his first start for the hosts in more than a year.

The full-back is one of several changes from the first leg, with Mamadou Sakho, Jordan Henderson and James Milner also starting.

Bojan starts for Stoke after starting the defeat at Leicester on the bench, while former Liverpool man Peter Crouch joins him up front.

The Reds take a 1-0 lead into the home leg, with Jordon Ibe scoring the only goal at the Britannia Stadium on January 5.

It would be a surprise if tonight's game is as low-scoring, with the two teams conceding a combined seven goals inย the weekend's Premier League games.

The winner over two legs will face either Manchester City or Everton in the final, with the Toffees holding a 2-1 first-leg advantage.
