Liverpool v Spartak Moscow – Confirmed lineups – Klopp fields full strength side

Liverpool vs Spartak Moscow, Shakthar Donetsk vs Manchester City: Champions League - LIVE

The competition's all-time leading scorer became the first player to ever score in all six group games of a season, while also drawing level with old rival Lionel Messi on 60 group-stage goals in total.

"I really think the atmosphere can and should help us", Klopp said in his pre-match press conference.

Monday's draw promises to throw up some mouth-watering contests - Liverpool will just hope they have done enough to avoid being involved in one of them. Can, Wijnaldum and Coutinho named alongside Salah, Mane and Firmino.

The five-times European champions took the lead in the fourth minute with a Coutinho penalty after Salah was pulled down by Georgi Dzhikiya. They've got forward players that are better than Manchester United, than Arsenal. They still see Coutinho as their main man, and they're making sure Barca know it.

Sadio Mane gets a recall in attack as he plays alongside Mohamed Salah, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino.

Maurizio Sarri's Napoli left their mark on the Champions League, with enterprising displays in back-to-back defeats by City, but ultimately disappointed by also losing to Feyenoord and Shakhtar. Mane pounced on a poor touch in midfield, and his cross into the box fell at the feet of Firmino who made no mistake.

Klopp's side started quickly and were 3-0 up by half time, then not letting up and scoring a further four goals in the second period to send Spartak Moscow back to Russian Federation on the end of a 7-0 hiding.

If the scoreline had threatened embarrassment for Spartak in the first half, then it brought it in the second. 15 minutes prior to the final whistle, Salah sent Daniel Sturridge through with the latter squaring the ball to Mane who slotted home from close range.

Despite inexplicably throwing away a three-goal lead against Sevilla in the last round of the Champions League group stage, Liverpool still sit top of Group E with their fate firmly in their own hands.

But the plaudits here go to Klopp's attack, and to Coutinho in particular. Over two legs, they can beat anyone.
