Salah To Return, Milner To Make A Start | 4-3-3 Liverpool Predicted Lineup Vs KRC Genk

Liverpool will clash heads with KRC Genk at the Luminus Arena on Wednesday night hoping to pick up their second win of this UEFA Champions League campaign. The reigning European champions will come into this encounter at the back of a poor showing against Manchester United last weekend when they could only grind out a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.

Jurgen Klopp will stick with his favoured 4-3-3 formation and might name Mohamed Salah and James Milner in his first-team for this European clash away in Belgium.

4-3-3 Liverpool Predicted Lineup To Face KRC Genk


Alisson Becker will keep his place in goal for the Reds despite failing to keep a clean sheet against the Red Devils on Sunday. Adrian will play as a back-up to the Brazilian goalie on Klopp’s bench. Joel Matip will play alongside Virgil Van Dijk at the heart of the Liverpool backline as the defensive duo focusses on securing a shut-out versus Genk.

Trent Alexander-Arnold will concentrate on whipping in some dangerous crosses into the Genk penalty area while operating as the right-back. Andrew Robertson will hope to do the same on the other side as he assumes the duties of the left-sided full-back.

Both defenders will likely be encouraged to push high up the field so that they can create some decent goal-scoring opportunities for the Liverpool frontline. Joe Gomez will have to settle for a spot on the bench.


The Reds could lineup with a midfield three of Georginio Wijnaldum, Fabinho and James Milner as Klopp looks to freshen things up at the middle of the park. The hard-working trio will try and dominate possession so that Liverpool can dictate proceedings in the opposition half. 

Both Naby Keita and Jordan Henderson will be a part of Klopp’s bench but might come on to influence the contest if required.


Mohamed Salah is a major doubt for this game, but he will likely recover in time to start in midweek versus Felice Mazzù’s men. Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane will join the Egyptian international as they look to wreak havoc in the final third.

Divock Origi, Adam Lallana and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will make up the numbers on the Liverpool bench. They might get a chance to make an impact if Klopp decides to call upon their services.
