Kylian Mbappe has a warning for Liverpool ahead of Champions League meeting

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has poured cold water on the severity of Roberto Firmino's eye injury after striker was forced off the field in win over Tottenham.

"When I read that he spent a whole evening talking about tactics with Pep Guardiola, a few years ago in Munich, moving around the salt and pepper, I thought to myself: "He's not changed". Div has a little bit of an ankle [injury]. We don't need to be the favourite to win the game or the outsider to win the game. If the game was today, no chance. "In which role, I can not tell you because it would make things very easy for Liverpool to prepare", he replied. I don't know if it's possible to avoid his quality.

If Firmino does not make it that would present Daniel Sturridge with, incredibly, the chance of the first Champions League start of his Liverpool career.

Klopp said: "He was rested at the weekend so he will be 100 per cent fresh for us and we will see the full Neymar package".

Utility player, James Milner, has been one of Liverpool's most impressive performers so far this season, and his tally of nine Champions League assists last term was a new record for the competition. Us playing them will look different to what they have faced so far this season.

"We are obviously in close contact with him and it improved already - but in this moment I can't say if he will be available for tomorrow".

This could easily be a quarter-final, not the opening game of Group C, and it will be fascinating to see who comes out on top: Liverpool have not lost at home in Europe since Real Madrid steamrollered them in October 2014 but that 16-game unbeaten sequence will be severely tested.
