Liverpool will clash with Paris Saint-Germain in Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League Group C opener at Anfield.
The Reds head to the game following a 2-1 victory against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League encounter at the weekend.
Liverpool’s manager, Jurgen Klopp will make a late decision over the fitness of striker Firmino, who was forced off during their win over Spurs due to an eye injury.
Klopp may name an unchanged squad that defeated Spurs on Saturday when they host PSG at home.
Utility player, James Milner, has been one of Liverpool’s most impressive performers so far this season, and his tally of nine Champions League assists last term was a new record for the competition.
Defender, Dejan Lovren and attacking midfielder, Adam Lallana remain sidelined for the Reds, while midfielder, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is a longer-term absentee.
Meanwhile, Paris Saints-Germain head to the game following a 4-0 victory against St Etienne last Friday.
PSG and Liverpool have only met on two previous occasions, both of which came in the 1996-97 Cup Winners’ Cup semi-finals.
The Ligue 1 champions took complete control of that tie with a 3-0 first-leg win at the Parc des Princes, but their only previous visit to Anfield saw them lose 2-0 – although they still progressed into the final on aggregate.
PSG coach, Thomas Tuchel will welcomes forwards, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar, who has scored in every game this season for the Parisians back into their side after both were rested at the weekend, while Angel Di Maria and Julian Draxler are likely to sit on the bench for the clash.
Goalkeeper, Gianluigi Buffon is suspended following his red card in Juventus’s dramatic defeat to Real Madrid in last season’s Champions League encounter, although he has seemingly fallen behind Alphonse Areola in the pecking order.
Midfielder, Adrien Rabiot is also likely to start in midfield, while Moussa Diaby will be hoping that his goal off the bench against Saint-Etienne could be enough to earn him a starting role.
Liverpool’s potential starting XI: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Milner, Henderson, Keita; Salah, Firmino, Mane
PSG’s potential starting XI: Areola; Meunier, Silva, Marquinhos, Bernat; Verratti, Diarra, Rabiot; Mbappe, Cavani, Neymar
The kick-off time is 8pm.
