AC Milan centre back Simon Kjaer has warned Liverpool that the Rossoneri are out to prove themselves in their Champions League clash on Wednesday.

Milan will make their first foray into the Champions League in seven years as Anfield plays host to the side's opening group stage game, while Liverpool begin their quest for their seventh title.

The Reds face a tricky start to their European journey this season, with manager Jurgen Klopp even admitting they have been drawn one of the toughest groups with Atletico Madrid, who Liverpool crashed out against in the last 16 last season, Porto and Milan.

Ahead of their trip to Merseyside, Kjaer claimed that Milan were prepared to provide a challenge for Klopp's side after growing 'physically and mentally'.

The Denmark captain arrived at Milan in January 2020 on a loan deal from Sevilla before signing permanently last September and believes he has improved alongside the team.

Remarkably, given the pedigree of the two clubs, this is the first time Liverpool have ever hosted Milan, their only previous meetings coming in the finals of 2005 - the story of which has been told many times over - and 2007.The last time they played each other was in a pre-season friendly in 2016, in what Klopp's first summer in charge.

Liverpool made short work of Milan that night in California, winning 2-0 at the home of the San Francisco 49ers, but there won't be any such formality now.
