Liverpool take on FC Midtjylland in their final Champions League group match having already qualified in top spot. 

Jurgen Klopp’s side have won four and lost one of their five matches to date,  including a 2-0 win in the reverse fixture.

The Reds secured their passage to the knockout stage as group winners with a 1-0 win over Ajax at Anfield last week.

Liverpool got the job done last week.

That victory plus an impressive 4-0 win over Wolves at the weekend means the Reds have won eight of their last 11 matches in all competitions, despite having to deal with a lengthy injury list.

This has given youngsters a chance to impress and they have taken the opportunity with both hands in recent weeks.

With qualification in the bag and a trip to Fulham to come at the weekend, it’s hard to guess which team Klopp will field on Wednesday but we’ve had a go at trying to guess the German’s selection.

Here we predict the Liverpool starting XI to take on FC Midtjylland in Denmark…


When Alisson suffered another injury last month, everyone expected Adrian to deputise between the sticks. However, Klopp gave a chance to 22-year-old Caoimhin Kelleher and he has grabbed it with both hands. The Irishman is again expected to keep his place for this one and – if he keeps a clean sheet – will become the first Liverpool goalkeeper to keep clean sheets in his first two Champions League starts for the club.
