Jurgen Klopp has a variety of options, but there is only one lineup that seems likely, as over 50,000 fans see Liverpool host AC Milan in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Now, with restrictions eased, UEFA has granted access to AC Milan fans for the tie – though ultras group Curva Sud have vowed not to attend due to difficulties in terms of travel and “the rigid English rules around COVID-19.” Anfield is expected to be full, or near full, regardless, with the occasion a significant one for Liverpool as they look to make a strong start to their European campaign.

This week, the Reds will play in front of a full Anfield for the first time in Europe since the meeting with Atletico Madrid in March 2020.

But how will the manager set his side up for Wednesday’s Group B opener?

There was one major development in terms of injuries at the weekend, but Klopp also has a number of other doubts for the tie: • Harvey Elliott sidelined for the long-term after ankle surgery • Roberto Firmino and Takumi Minamino still unlikely due to injuries • Neco Williams also set to miss out; Conor Bradley trained in his absence • James Milner could be involved having returned to training Realistically, if no further problems arise from training or following the win at Leeds, there is only one lineup Klopp will look to.

It would mean just one change from the trip to Elland Road, that being enforced due to Elliott’s injury: • Jordan Henderson to come in alongside Fabinho and Thiago That would see Liverpool take to the field like this: However, there is a small chance the manager mixes things up slightly, with the obvious point of contention being in midfield.

Curtis Jones, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are all possibilities to replace Elliott if Klopp is seeking a similarly progressive option, while James Milner could provide big-game nous.
