Klopp talks Istanbul & early AC Milan match team news – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool vs AC Milan has approximately nine million plot lines, memories and possibilities associated with it and we cannot wait for our Champions League campaign to get started!


Team news from both sides ahead of Anfield clash

Starting with the visitors, they will be without weekend goalscorer and talismanic figure Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The Swede is only just back after a knee injury and he’s not travelling to Anfield for the game after suffering a reaction with a tight Achilles.

For the Reds, Taki Minamino is back in training and could feature in the squad after missing the win over Leeds. No Neco Williams or Roberto Firmino, however.

Of course, Harvey Elliott is also set for an absence, and he’s had surgery on his ankle injury today.

As for those who will play, we’ve got an almost certain line-up for the Reds, with captain Jordan Henderson set for a recall to the XI.
