SUBS: Mignolet, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Fabinho, Keita, Shaqiri, Sturridge.

The boss has opted for the experience of Milner, Henderson and Wijnaldum in midfield. You may recall that they started in the 3-2 win over PSG at Anfield back in September.

Xherdan Shaqiri returns to the bench with Klopp reverting to a 4-3-3 formation.

Joe Gomez returns in place of Trent Alexander-Arnold at right-back while Dejan Lovren keeps his place alongside Virgil van Dijk in the heart of the defence.

Big money signings Naby Keïta and Fabinho find themselves on the bench.

As expected Neymar and Mbappé start for PSG after returning from injury. The duo were injured on international duty and missed Saturday’s 1-0 league victory over Toulouse but are back in the PSG line-up this evening.

PSG: Buffon, Kehrer, Silva, Kimpembe, Bernat, Marquinhos, Verratti, Di Maria, Neymar, Cavani, Mbappe.

SUBS: Areola, Alves, Choupo-Moting, Draxler, Rabiot, Diaby, Nsoki.
