Liverpool receive massive Champions League injury boost

Liverpool receive massive Champions League injury boost

While Liverpool's victory improves their hopes of progression, defeat for Red Star means the club now face an uphill battle to secure even a Europa League spot. Trent Alexander-Arnold and forward Roberto Firmino are in!

Jurgen Klopp's men looked back to something like their best in midweek, swatting aside Red Star Belgrade 4-0 in the Champions League, and they will be looking to make it 10 Premier League games unbeaten at the start of what promises to be a thrilling campaign.

"Obviously times move on, and now I've got to be my own player and show what I can do". As ever, you can watch all the action Live & Exclusive via beIN SPORTS Connect.

Liverpool and Cardiff haven't met since the 2013-14 season in the Premier League - the Reds won both games, winning 3-1 at Anfield and 6-3 away from home.

Klopp said his team got their balance and intentions right at Huddersfield but let themselves down with sloppy final passes, which prevented them from scoring more goals on counterattacks.

Mohamed Salah was back among the goals as he scored twice during the 4-0 Champions League win and the Egyptian global should once again start on the right wing.

UEFA spaid out more than 1.412 billion euros among the Champions League clubs, with Real Madrid top of the list, getting an 88.6 million euro handout.

After having returned with an injury during the global break, midfielder Naby Keita is still unavailable for selection for the Merseyside outfit.

Klopp also confirmed that midfielders James Milner and Georginio Wijnaldum had recovered from minor injury issues and are in contention to start.

In team news, Red Star will be without two key players for the trip to Anfield. The midfielder is back in light training and will be assessed ahead of the Cardiff game but I don't think Klopp will take any unnecessary risks.

Liverpool travel to Belgrade for the return with Red Star in two weeks, knowing that another three points in the Serbian capital will go a long way to helping them seal qualification for the knockout phase of the competition.
