Liverpool will entertain AC Milan at Anfield on Wednesday night as they try to keep their good form going by picking up maximum points at home in the UEFA Champions League. The Reds managed to secure a dominant 3-0 win over Leeds United last weekend which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this midweek clash at Merseyside.

Jurgen Klopp will set his team up in a 4-3-3 formation once again and will be forced to make a change in midfield. Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson is expected to play from the start in the injury absence of Harvey Elliott who is facing a long spell on the sidelines after dislocating his ankle in the win against the Whites on Sunday.

Alisson Becker will retain his place in goal for the Reds after securing an impressive clean sheet in his last outing. Joel Matip will once again feature alongside Virgil Van Dijk at the centre of the Liverpool defence as they hope to keep the AC Milan attackers at bay throughout the game.

Trent Alexander-Arnold will resume his duties at right-back while Andrew Robertson is expected to be a nailed-on starter at left-back. Both Liverpool full-backs will get the license to get forward at every chance they get as they look to create some clear-cut opportunities for their teammates up top.

Joe Gomez and Ibrahima Konate will be available for selection on the bench as they provide cover for the centre-back positions.

Thiago Alcantara, Fabinho and Jordan Henderson will make up Klopp’s midfield as the Liverpool boss could be inclined to name his strongest XI for this game versus the Milan giants in midweek. All three of them will focus on dominating possession at the centre of the park and engineer some meaningful openings in the final third.

James Milner, Naby Keita and Curtis Jones will all have to settle for a place on the bench as they await their chance to make an impact in the second half if needed.


Sadio Mane did not have his shooting boots on against Leeds despite scoring a late goal last weekend. Therefore, the Senegalese winger will be eager to produce a more ruthless performance down the left wing when he laces up to face off against AC Milan later this week.

Mohamed Salah has arguably been Liverpool’s best player this season, so he will be a guaranteed starter on the right flank. Diogo Jota will once again spearhead Klopp’s attack down the middle as Roberto Firmino is likely to miss this game as well due to a thigh injury.
