Liverpool team news: Injury, suspension list vs. AC Milan

Sports Mole rounds up all of Liverpool's injury and suspension news ahead of their Champions League clash with AC Milan on Tuesday.

Liverpool's sixth and final game of the Champions League group stages takes place on Tuesday, with AC Milan lying in wait in Group B.

The Reds had already qualified for the knockout stages before welcoming Porto to Anfield on matchday five but nevertheless marched to a convincing 2-0 victory.

However, Jurgen Klopp had to rely on Divock Origi to bail his side out of trouble at the weekend, as the Reds claimed a last-gasp 1-0 win at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest.


Naby Keita

Type of injury: Hamstring
Possible return date: December 7 (vs. Milan)

Naby Keita is now taking part in team training as he closes in on a return to action, and he could potentially make his comeback on Tuesday.

Possible return date: December 7 (vs. Milan)

Joe Gomez is almost over a calf problem and rejoined team training last week alongside Keita, so a comeback in midweek is not beyond the realm of possibility.
