We are only a few hours away from the big kickoff of the Premier League season against Sunderland. In a new feature for the coming season for OurKop.com, we will be sharing with each other, who we think will be in the starting lineup come kickoff time.

With all the new signings Liverpool have made this summer, it will be interesting to see who actually gets to start today. Reina will certainly be in goal today. As for the right-back, Kenny Dalglish said yesterday that they would see how Johnson is this morning before they decide if he will start. My guess is Johnson may not be ready to play today and that could see Kelly starting at right-back.

Carragher and Agger should form our central defence partnership. The choice of left-back will be interesting as Dalglish has new boy Jose Enrique ready to play but will he throw him straight into the starting lineup? Fabio Aurelio is just returning to full fitness so he stands a chance of starting. My guess is that Dalglish will start with Aurelio.

When it comes to the midfield, it all depends on what formation you think Dalglish will use today. My guess is that he will opt to play with Stewart Downing on the left, Henderson on the right, Adam and Lucas in the middle. That leaves Carroll and Kuyt playing upfront as I only see Suarez starting off the bench.

Who do you think will start against Sunderland?
