Here is our predicted Liverpool lineup to face AC Milan

This week sees one of the most storied fixtures in European history play out at Anfield. Liverpool lineup against AC Milan, a tie which is inextricable from the Miracle of Istanbul in 2005. A lot has changed since. Here is our predicted Liverpool lineup to face AC Milan:

Goalkeeper: Alisson Becker

The Brazilian has been as consistent as ever this season, we can rely on him for the big occasion.

Right back: Trent Alexander-Arnold

The Scouser in our team is unlike anything this Milan side have faced before, he’ll give them nightmares.

Centre back: Virgil van Dijk

The Dutchman will be key to keeping the back line in check, particularly the debutant alongside him.

Centre back: Ibrahima Konate

The £36m could be set for his Liverpool debut with the fragile Joel Matip perhaps not ready for two games a week just yet.

Left back: Andy Robertson

The Scotland captain hasn’t started the season as brightly as Trent, Kostas Tsimikas will be breathing down his neck.

Defensive midfield: Fabinho

The Lighthouse was man of the match at the weekend, we’ll need him on top again this week.

Centre midfield: Naby Keita

The Guinean was impressive in our first two games of the season. With Harvey Elliott injured we expect him back in the starting lineup.

Centre midfield: Jordan Henderson

Thiago ran the show at the weekend but we expect him to be rested with the skipper back in from the start.

Right wing: Mo Salah

The Egyptian King reached 100 Premier League goals at the weekend, he’ll be right in the mood.

Left wing: Sadio Mane

Sadio showed persistence pays off this weekend, hopefully it won’t take him 10 shots at Anfield.

Striker: Diogo Jota

The Portugal forward was a star in the group stage last season, more of the same please.
