Liverpool vs AC Milan predicted line-ups: Team news ahead of Champions League fixture tonight
Jordan Henderson is likely to feature in the match
Jordan Henderson may have been benched against Leeds United on Sunday but he is set to feature in Liverpool’s Champions League match against AC Milan.
The clash, on Wednesday night, will see the captain return to the starting XI after 18-year-old Harvey Elliott sustained an ankle injury in the Premier League match.
He will be on the sidelines for a prolonged period and manager Jurgen Klopp was emotional post-match.
He told Sky Sports: “It is a bad injury. Ankle. I heard it was dislocated and we could put it back, he’s now in hospital,” he revealed. “He played an incredible game, an incredible player.
“Now he’s out. Do I want such a young boy to have this experience so early in his career? No.”
Liverpool will look to their strength in depth to cover Elliott’s absence and all the team news and more can be found below.
When is it?
The match will kick-off at 8pm on Wednesday, 15 September at Anfield Stadium.
