Liverpool predicted XI vs Midtjylland as Klopp welcomes three fresh legs


English Primer League champions Liverpool will line up against Midtjylland on Tuesday for the Champions League encounter as manager Jurgen Klopp welcomes fresh legs for the challenge.

Goalkeeper Alisson Becker, Thiago, and Joel Matip are the fresh legs that could be available for selection against Midtjylland but that will be subject to the final fitness test and the selection decision by the German boss.

We saw manager Jurgen Klopp employ the 4-2-3-1 formation in the English Premier League at the weekend and there are chances that he could go ahead with the same formation in the Champions League clash.

After helping to score a goal in the Premier League at the weekend against Sheffield United, we could see Diogo Jota having his Champions league starting debut in a formation that will have him complete the attacking line-up alongside Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, and Roberto Firmino and that is expected to give the team a huge chance of a win in the game.

We could also see Joel Matip return to the defence to partner Joe Gomez and Thiago could also replace Gini Wijnaldum in the midfield which is a major boost at Anfield.

However, manager Jurgen Klopp has got a lot of options for the game and it will not be a surprise to see any change in our predicted line up going by his view on the readiness of the players and a last-minute situation like injuries.

After winning the Champions League last two seasons, the Reds are gearing up to take a shot at it again by starting on a good note and a win against Midtjylland will be another step forward for the team.

Alisson Becker, Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Joe Gomez, Andy Robertson, Henderson, Thiago, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Diogo Jota, Mohamed Salah.
