Written by:

Liverpool matters return to football following days of controversy, statements and audio assessments when Belgian Pro League leaders Union Saint-Gilloise arrive at Anfield for matchday two in the Europa League. 

The Reds will be looking to make it two wins from two in Europe after a comeback victory in Austria on opening night and Jurgen Klopp will hope for a more comfortable night’s work. 

Despite the first defeat of the season, Liverpool look revitalised, defiant and USG will face a side determined to prove a point and a crowd determined to get behind their heroes – a heady mix.

Predicted XI

Albeit the penultimate clash before the international break, it’s unlikely Klopp will select a full-strength side with Brighton on the weekend and suspension and injury impacting the options at the German’s disposal. 

The sentimental selection of Alexis Mac Allister to face his brother Kevin seems unlikely, whilst both Curtis Jones and Diogo Jota are almost certain to feature as they will be suspended for the trip to the south coast. 

Trent Alexander-Arnold was put up for media duties so seems certain to captain the side from the outset, whilst Ryan Gravenberch could need more minutes in his legs ahead of a potential first Premier League start. 

XI: Kelleher, Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Quansah, Tsimikas; Jones, Elliott, Gravenberch; Doak, Jota, Nunez. 

Redmen Reacts

Although Liverpool will have to guard against complacency, a on song Reds side should have more than enough to overpower their Belgian opponents and indeed the rest of the group. 

Qualification as champions is imperative and another three points here will stand Klopp’s charges in superb stead for achieving just that at double fast speed. 

Minutes in the legs for some and rest for others will be a relatively straightforward night’s work is the order of the day…
