AC Milan vs Liverpool LIVE: Champions League team news, line-ups and more tonight



Klopp on Salah’s contract: ‘I think what we all want is clear.’

Follow live as Liverpool head to AC Milan in the Champions League with their hosts hoping for a memorable night in their famous stadium tonight. The Rossoneri have work to do – and need a result to go their way in Portugal too – if they want to make the last-16, currently sat bottom of Group B. It’s a three-way fight for the second place to reach the knock-outs, but Milan’s opponents on the night are runaway leaders.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have won five from five to comfortably claim top spot regardless of this final result, but they could make history as the first Premier League side to win all six group stage games if they triumph at the San Siro.

The hosts’ task is likely to be made more difficult by a spate of attacking absences, but the Reds will rotate with a heavy fixture list to come, says the manager. “We have to rotate, we will rotate. We have to rotate, that is the headline,” Klopp told media on Monday. “We’ve had five games in the last 14 or 15 days and and after the Milan game, it’s pretty much the same number of games in the same number of days so we have to make the right decisions and we will.” Follow all the updates:

AC Milan vs Liverpool: Unwanted legend Divock Origi revels as Liverpool’s underestimated understudy

The legend of Barcelona, Tottenham, Everton, Everton and Everton may also be the legend of Wolves now. Saturday’s winner at Molineux may have transported Liverpool back to 2019, to the time when Origi felt deadly in short bursts and likely to provide late drama.

But part of the curiosity of Origi, the Champions League final scorer that season who has rarely been a regular for Liverpool, is that he was the unwanted legend.

AC Milan vs Liverpool

Liverpool have not lost in the Champions League this season and hav already secured assured top spot in the group but all three of the other teams in Group B are in the running to claim the runners-up spot.

Porto currently occupy the position on five points, one more than both Milan and Atletico Madrid. A win for the Portuguese side at home to Atletico will seal it.

However, should both Atletico and Milan win it will come down to goal difference as they are tied on their head-to-head record. The Italian side are currently one goal better off than Diego Simeone’s team so they’ll be throwing everything at Liverpool tonight to earn a win.
