Most of the players who were involved in the weekend win at Chelsea are scheduled to travel, although one definite absentee will be Joao Teixeira, who is ineligible for the competition.

Liverpool at the very least have to avoid defeat in Kazan if they are to avoid a tricky conclusion to their Group B campaign.

They currently trail leaders Sion (on seven points) by three and are ahead of Kazan by only a point with Bordeaux to follow in their final home game ahead a trip to Switzerland in December.

Klopp named a strong side for the home game against Kazan – which ended in a third successive 1-1 draw in Europe.
