Preview: Liverpool vs Inter – latest team & injury news, predicted XI

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side are back in action tonight, as they take on Inter Milan in the second leg of their Champions League round of 16 match-up at Anfield – with kick-off at 8pm UK time.

The Reds are currently leading the tie 2-0 on aggregate, but the current Serie A Champions still have enough quality to punish the English team, should they lose their concentration during the game.

On Saturday, Liverpool put out a strong side against top four contenders West Ham, beating the London side 1-0 at home thanks to a first-half Sadio Mane goal, but with three players since returning from injury, there could be plenty of changes from the team that started against the Irons at the weekend.

Will Liverpool qualify for the next round of the Champions League tonight?

Yes, they have too much quality!

No, Inter will come back to win!

No, Inter will come back to win!

With that being said, here’s how we think Liverpool could line up against Inter Milan, as well as the latest team and injury news…

After Klopp revealed that both Joel Matip and Thiago Alcantara were back in first-team training on Sunday, we expect both players to make two of the expected three changes – with the game coming too soon for Roberto Firmino who also returned to Melwood after the game against West Ham.

The defence will see just one change, with Matip coming in for Ibrahima Konate, while Alisson, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson all keep their places in the team.

In midfield, Jordan Henderson and Fabinho should retain their places in the starting XI following their solid displays on Saturday, while we expect “world-class” midfielder Thiago to come in for Naby Keita and offer all of his experience in the middle of the pitch to help the Reds see the game out.

Up-top, the one and only change we expect to see is the return of Diogo Jota in place of the “frightening” Luis Diaz.

Think you know all about Liverpool's title winners and where they came from? Test your knowledge... First, from which club did the Reds sign captain Jordan Henderson?

Although the 25-year-old has shown plenty of quality and potential, has scored just one goal and made zero assists since moving to Merseyside – and should Inter get even just one goal back, the attacking output of the former Wolves star could be crucial.

After all, he has a whopping 17 goals this season so could make all of the difference in such a big game.
