LIVERPOOL VS AC MILAN
A huge Champions League night at Anfield – and what a fixture for it!
Milan head to Merseyside for matchday one in what promises to be another classic encounter.
A repeat of the famous 2005 final, Jurgen Klopp’s Reds will be hoping to kickstart their group stage with three points.
They moved joint top of the Premier League with Sunday’s 3-0 win over Leeds. A win marred by the injury to Harvey Elliott.
Milan themselves sit top of Serie A after three wins from their opening three games.
Zlatan bagging the second in a 2-0 win over Lazio, his first goal of the season.
Elliott will play no part in this match after the horrific injury he suffered at Leeds. Club captain Jordan Henderson is likely to be his replacement.
Roberto Firmino and Neco Williams are also definitely out.
Olivier Giroud has recovered from coronavirus and is therefore set to start for AC Milan ahead of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Tiemoue Bakayoko and Rade Krunic are out injured while former Chelsea star Fikayo Tomori is likely to earn a start in defence.
We get under way from Anfield at 8pm with the all important team news on the way shortly.
Stick with us as we build up to tonight’s big game.
