UEFA STAT: AC Milan have only won two of their last eight games in European competition (D4 L2), all of which came in the UEFA Europa League last season.

Time for the warm up as Liverpool gear up for a European night under the lights at Anfield - with the 12th man present!

Jurgen Klopp: "This is the strongest group we've had since I've been at Liverpool. In 2012-2013 at Dortmund, I think we had Manchester City, Real Madrid and Ajax - that was a proper group. This group keeps out two really good teams from knockouts and delivers one strong team to the Europa League. I never understand when people talk about changes to the Champions League. I like the Champions League how it is and this group shows there are no games where people will think 'do I really want to watch that'. It will be exciting from the first second to the last second. I can't see any kind of early decisions made in this group."

Jürgen Klopp

AC Milan boss, Stefano Pioli: “We are there to demonstrate we are not on holiday. We are there to do something. This match is very special because we are back in the Champions League and we will play with great pleasure but we need to demonstrate we are back in the Champions League. We are in a very good position in our pathway and we have grown up so much, but we have to show that. We need to have the mindset that we can play against any team.”

INSIDE EUROPE: Milan are back in the Champions League for the first time since 2014. They are currently second in Serie A, behind leaders Roma on goal difference, with three wins from three. We caught up with our Eurosport Italy colleague Carlofilippo Vardelli to find out what to expect from the resurgent Rossoneri.

19.15 

As expected, there's no Zlatan Ibrahimovic for AC Milan with the Rossoneri making three changes from Sunday’s 2-0 win over Lazio in Serie A. Simon Kjaer, Ismael Bennacer and Alexis Saelemaekers get the nod.

The absence of Zlatan means Ante Rebic leads the line with ex-Arsenal and Chelsea forward Olivier Giroud on the bench.

Liverpool make four changes from the 3-0 win over Leeds. Joe Gomez headlines with his first start of the season in place of Virgil van Dijk, who is on the bench.
