Liverpool: Champions League predicted XI vs AC Milan

Liverpool go into their last Champions League group game this evening, already qualified and in a position to break the record as the first English side to win every single Champions League group stage game.

Despite already being qualified and the game at the San Siro tonight not having an effect on Liverpool’s qualification or position in the group table, Klopp will be working to put out a team that could break the record and keep the winning mentality flowing through the team, even with a heavy rotation of players.

With that being said, here is how Football FanCast expects Liverpool to line up against AC Milan away from home this evening;

Champions League - Liverpool - Predicted XI

We predict there will be seven changes made to the Liverpool side we saw against Wolves in the Premier League last weekend, with Mo Salah, Alisson Becker, Jordan Henderson and Virgil Van Dijk staying in the team to keep the balance and protect the areas where less experienced players will be rotated in.

Divock Origi is tipped to make an appearance in the starting line up for Liverpool this evening, after an impressive performance against Wolves when he came on as a substitute and scored the winning goal in the 94th minute, leading to huge praise from Jurgen Klopp where the German coach referred to the £10.8m-rated striker as a “legend” after the game;

“Divock Origi, the legend, finished it off and it’s a great story,” he said.

“He’s one of the best finishers I’ve ever seen in my life. In this great team, with our [front] three, he doesn’t play all the time but he is a very positive boy, loves the club, wants to contribute and he did in an incredible way.”

First up in this 2020/21 season quiz, how many PL goals did Mo Salah score?

Teenager, Tyler Morton, is yet again predicted to join the starting line up, after making his debut in the senior team due to an early midfield injury crisis at Liverpool this season. He has proved he has what it takes as a result of not losing a single game he has played in for the senior side so far this season, with four appearances under his belt already in Klopp’s team.

Other changes include Taki Minamino coming in for Sadio Mane on the left who earns a well-deserved rest. Fabinho and Thiago also miss out with the aforementioned Morton and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain coming in.

There are mass changes at the back where Kostas Tsimikas, Ibrahima Konate and Neco Williams all start.

The Liverpool side are in fantastic form at the moment and AC Milan will have work to do to take a very important three points from this game, that with a win, could see them qualify alongside the Merseyside giants if results go their way.
