Jurgen Klopp: "This is a decisive moment in the group - we need to be confident and brave we don't need to think about the last game. We play Maribor twice now. We've already wasted points so we have to be very good again it's an important moment."

DID YOU KNOW? Maribor are only the second Slovenian team Liverpool have locked horns with in Europe. The other team? Olimpija Ljubljana back in the 2003-04 UEFA Cup, first round. The Merseysiders won 4-1 on aggregate, cruising to a 3-0 success at Anfield after a 1-1 draw on their travels.

19.22 

Erm....

19.20 

Klopp has made three changes to the Liverpool team that drew with Man United at the weekend. As expected, Loris Karius starts in goal while Trent Alexander-Arnold comes in for Joe Gomez and James Milner replaces captain Jordan Henderson, who drops to the bench.

19.15 

Maribor will deploy a 4-2-3-1 system with captain Marcos Tavares leading the line. Liverpool go with a similar formation that they hope will be more like a 4-3-3 when they are on the attack.
