Jurgen Klopp could make some changes for Inter clash

Inter Milan v Liverpool: team news

Inter will be without Nicolo Barella through suspension after being sent off against Real in their last group game.

Joaquin Correa and Robin Gosens are also set to miss with hamstring injuries, while Aleksandar Kolarov and Stefano Sensi are not eligible.

Meanwhile, Lautaro Martinez, Edin Dzeko and Alexis Sanchez are in contention to start.

Jurgen Klopp could choose to make some changes to freshen up his squad for the San Siro clash.

Diogo Jota could start after being named on the bench for their win over Burnley at the weekend, while Luis Diaz and Roberto Firmino are also in contention.

Jordan Henderson will travel to Italy despite being injured at Burnley.

“Hendo is fine. He got hit in the knee and today was the second day of recovery for a lot of players like him too, so it wasn’t the longest session for him,” Klopp said.

“But other than that there aren’t really any issues. The knee in the game was definitely not comfortable, it’s a real injury, it really shows – it shouldn’t be there. A other than that, he’s fine.”

Inter Milan v Liverpool: what has been said?

Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold believes Klopp’s multi-talented side are capable of winning a treble this season.

“Certainly on all four fronts, it’s easier to have so many great players in the squad,” he said.

“But the seasons where we won the Champions League and almost won the league, we showed people that we could compete on many fronts.

“Being on all four fronts is good for us. Our goal is to make sure we are always in all four competitions for as long as we can.

“Looking at it now it’s only the league that’s not really in our hands, all the other cup competitions we’re in we think we can win them or beat everyone in our day if we do things right.

“So the only one is the league – and anything can happen there. It’s important for us to keep winning games.

“I don’t think the nine-point gap is a lot of pressure, but we have to keep as much pressure as possible, make sure we win the game at hand and take it to six.

“There’s not much in our hands but anything can happen in this league so make sure we’re able to pounce if they slip.

“The other three competitions, we think we are capable of winning them.”
