Liverpool start their Champions League journey with a tough tie against Paris Saint-Germain at Anfield on Tuesday.

The Reds have won all their matches in the Premier League so far and will go into the game after a fantastic performance against Tottenham on Saturday.

Liverpool lead the Premier League standings but taking on PSG will be a different task. The French champions have a number of attacking outlets but we are blessed with talent all across the field.

Roberto Firmino did pick up an eye injury at Wembley and here is our predicted starting XI for the Reds.

Predicted Liverpool XI

Formation: 4-3-3

Manager: Jurgen Klopp

Alisson (GK)

The Brazilian is a sure-shot starter for our first Champions League game of the season and he must maintain a clean sheet against PSG.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (RB)

The English defender was great at Wembley and we should see him start ahead of Nathaniel Clyne as our right-back.

Joe Gomez (CB)

Gomez has formed a great partnership at the back with Virgil van Dijk and should keep his place in the team.

Virgil van Dijk

Virgil van Dijk (CB)

The Dutch defender has been excellent from the first game of the season and going up against Neymar and Kylian Mbappe will be a true test of our defence.

Andy Robertson (LB)

Robertson has been great and will face a major test against the French side on Tuesday.

Georginio Wijnaldum (CM)

One of the goalscorers from Wembley, Wijnaldum must start for us as the Dutch midfielder has been excellent for us this term.

James Milner (CM)

Another player to have started brightly this season, Milner should keep his place in the team to face Thomas Tuchel’s side.

Naby Keita (CM)

The Guinean was guilty of a couple of misses in the 2-1 win over Tottenham but he must aim to score against PSG to make amends.

Mohamed Salah (RW)

Salah was guilty of being extremely selfish against Tottenham but the Egyptian must do better on Tuesday.

Roberto Firmino (ST)

The Brazilian was poked in the eye by Jan Vertonghen and had to be subbed in the last game but he should return for the Reds at Anfield.

Sadio Mane (LW)

Liverpool interested in signing 27-year-old superstar from Napoli

Lorenzo Insigne

Liverpool are interested in signing Napoli superstar Lorenzo Insigne, according to Rai Sport (h/t Metro).

The Italian scored a late winner for the Serie A club in our Champions League loss a couple of weeks ago. The report adds that Chelsea are keeping an eye on the 27-year-old too and would rival the Reds for any bid on the Italian.

The attacker is known to Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri during their time at Napoli. The report adds that any team looking to sign Insigne up would have to stump a huge fee since the player has four years left on his current deal.

The attacker has seven goals and an assist in all competitions for the Serie A side, so far, and helped them to second place in the league last season.

The report adds that Klopp wants more firepower for the Reds and Insigne could be the perfect fit at Anfield.

Liverpool have Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane as quality wingers and added Xherdan Shaqiri in the summer. However, signing Insigne could make our attack one of the best in the world.

The report adds it would be difficult for Insigne to switch clubs in the winter window and we would have to wait till the summer before we make a bid for the 27-year-old.

Virgil van Dijk

Liverpool have been handed a triple boost ahead of their game against Huddersfield on Saturday. The Mirror reports that Virgil van Dijk, James Milner and Mohamed Salah are certain of being fit for the Premier League game.

Milner had injured his hamstring in the 0-0 draw against Manchester City and was expected to be out of action until December, as per the report.

However, the Englishman has made a remarkable recovery, and the report adds that Liverpool’s medics have given him the all-clear to make a comeback.

Milner has to take part in full training on Thursday to have a chance of making it to the team for the Huddersfield game.

Salah and Van Dijk also had injuries during the international break. However, the Egyptian only has a slight muscle strain while the Dutch defender has been dealing with a rib injury that requires pain-killers, as per the report.

The forward is returning to Liverpool for further treatment and should participate in full training before Thursday, according to the Mirror.

Ronald Koeman shed light on Van Dijk’s problem and was quoted by the Mirror as saying:

“He spoke to the manager. The medical staff of the Dutch national team spoke to the medical staff of Liverpool and made the decision that he was playing only the Germany game and then after back to Liverpool.

“He is ready to play next weekend.”
