Liverpool vs AC Milan: Team News:
Young Harvey Elliott joined both Neco Williams and Roberto Firmino on the injury list after suffering an ankle injury against Leeds on Sunday. As a result, Diogo Jota will continue to lead the attacking line for the reds. Meanwhile, Brazil international Alisson Becker and Fabinho have become available after the suspension involving the recent series of events in Brazil.
Olivier Giroud has recovered from Corona Virus and is available for selection. The former Chelsea might get the nod in attack over Ibrahimovic and Ante Rebic. Tiemoue Bakayoko – who was allegedly the target of racist abuse at the weekend – lasted just 13 minutes as a substitute before going off injured against Lazio. On the other hand, midfielder Rade Krunic remains out.

Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, Matip, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago; Salah, Jota, Mane
