Liverpool will be chasing back-to-back Champions League wins when they host Danish side Midtjylland as Jurgen Klopp’s side look to gain an early advantage in Group D.
The Reds opened up their European campaign with a narrow 1-0 win over Ajax last week and are big favourites to make it two wins from as many games against the Champions League newcomers.
Sportsmail will have live UCL coverage of Liverpool vs Midtjyland including score, lineups and updates.
The Liverpool boss said: “We don’t see Midtjylland as a small club, we see Midtjylland as a proper challenger in this group.
“No one is part of the Champions League because they are nice cities, they are in the Champions League because they earned the right the year before.
“There are no small teams in the Champions League, there are only teams who show how big they are on the pitch, not in the press conferences before games.
“The 4-0 against Atalanta was not a 4-0 – it was because the score was 4-0 but Midtjylland were in the game. Tomorrow it will be a real challenge and we have to be ready for it, and we will try to be.”
Liverpool XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Gomez, Robertson, Henderson, Milner, Shaqiri, Jota, Minamino, Origi.
Substitutes: Wijnaldum, Firmino, Mane, Salah, Adrian, Jones, Rhys Williams, Jaros, Cain, Neco Williams.
