Liverpool are looking for another big win as they seek to keep their Champions League hopes on track against Maribor.




Jurgen Klopp's Reds blew apart Maribor in Slovenia on gameweek three, with a 7-0 victory leaving the Premier League club level on points with Group D leaders Spartak Moscow after three games.

With Spartak and Sevilla facing off on Wednesday night, Liverpool know another strong win will likely send them top of the group ahead of their final two gameweeks.

Team news

Dejan Lovren is expected to miss out after pulling out of Liverpool's 3-0 win against Huddersfield during the warm-up

Philippe Coutinho is a doubt with a hip problem, while Sadio Mane (hamstring), Adam Lallana (thigh) and Nathaniel Clyne (back) remain sidelined.

The Reds did not suffer from any further injuries during the Huddersfield Town game on Saturday, however, Dejan Lovren picked up a groin injury in the pre-match warm up, meaning he is almost certain to miss out.




Philippe Coutinho failed to recover from his Adductor problem for the match against David Wagner's men, and is still a doubt to feature on Wednesday.

Last season Huddersfield loanee, Danny Ward, had his minor hopes of featuring against his team mates of last season dashed, as he sustained a back injury mid-week. The Welshman remains out of action for the time being.

As much as Liverpool would love to have them back, the first team trio of Adam Lallana, Sadio Mane and Nathaniel Clyne are still sidelined.

Liverpool starting XI: Karius, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Klavan, Moreno, Milner, Can, Wijnaldum, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Sturridge, Salah
