Line-ups: Liverpool-Sevilla

Team news for the Europa League Final between Liverpool and Sevilla has been confirmed with both clubs naming strong XIs.

Kevin Gameiro leads the line for Los Rojiblancos and has Coke, pushed up from right-back as part of his three-man support, with playmaker Ever Banega and Vitolo completing the unit.

Steven N’Zonzi and Grzegorz Krychowiak form the central midfield pairing and Mariano, Adil Rami, Dani Carrico, playing his 100th game for the club, and Sergio Escudero are in defence, Escudero starting due to Benoit Tremoulinas’ season-ending injury. David Soria gets the nod in goal.

Former Sevilla defender Alberto Moreno lines up against his old team, having been part of the side that won this very competition in 2014, beating Benfica.

Moreno is part of a back four that also includes Nathaniel Clyne, Kolo Toure and Dejan Lovren, with Martin Skrtel on the bench and Mamadou Sakho banned for a positive drugs test.

Behind them is goalkeeper Simon Mignolet and in front is the three-man midfield of Emre Can, James Milner, who captains the side, and Adam Lallana.

Daniel Sturridge gets the nod in attack with Christian Benteke among the subs and has Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firminho in support.
