first_img 11 11 11 11 10. Philippe Coutinho (winger) 11 A win over Sunderland Wednesday night could catapult Liverpool up to seventh and within touching distance of the top four.Jurgen Klopp’s tenure, so far, has been mixed with wins over Manchester City and Leicester City being overshadowed by losses to Newcastle, Crystal Palace and Watford.But now, against a Black Cats side coming off the back of a Boxing Day beating at the hands of Man City, the Reds have the chance to end the year on a high.Three points would leave them with 30 for the season and five points off fourth placed Tottenham Hotspur, who are being tipped for a title tilt.Klopp will, though, have to face Sunderland without Divock Origi, Daniel Sturridge, Danny Ings, James Milner and Martin Skrtel, while Joe Gomez remains a long-term absentee.So who will the German pick to face Sam Allardyce’s men?
