Group E remains the most open pool in the competition with three sides battling it out for a place in the Champions League knock-out stages.

Victory for Liverpool at Anfield will win see Jurgen Klopp’s side win the group, though a draw at home to Spartak Moscow will suffice with regards to simply progressing.

Spartak know that anything less than three points will condemn them to the Europa League, and even then they could miss out if Sevilla win against Maribor.
