Liverpool Host Genk in Champions League

Fabinho Could Return to the Starting Line-Up

Jurgen Klopp’s team head into Tuesday night’s game knowing a victory edges them closer to qualification. However, failure to beat the Belgians could send Napoli through to the last 16. The Reds are full of confidence following their dramatic comeback at Aston Villa.

Brazilian defensive rock Fabinho was left on the bench at Villa Park on Saturday but could come into the team. Klopp is expected to ring the changes ahead of their crucial game with Manchester City on Sunday. Fabinho, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, James Milner, Joe Gomez and Naby Keita could all come into the team. However, the game comes too soon for Joel Matip.

Sadio Mane Will Look to Continue His Tremendous Season

Sadio Mane is arguably enjoying his best start to a season. The Senegalese forward is full of confidence having snatched Liverpool victory at Villa Park. He will spearhead the Liverpool attack tomorrow night looking to continue his tremendous form. Klopp knows he can rely on the forward to deliver the goods and expect the Anfield crowd to roar them on.

Liverpool could equal a Champions League record if they score four goals tomorrow night. The Reds will become the third side to score four goals in three consecutive matches if they match their goal haul in Belgium. Furthermore, the omens are in the Reds’ favour to equal this record, with Genk woeful on their travels in Europe.

It is another busy week for Liverpool. Klopp will hope for an efficient performance with no injuries ahead of that mouth-watering clash with Manchester City on Sunday. Another win on Tuesday will take them a step closer to knockout phases of the competition and Klopp will no doubt drill that message into his players.
