The Reds will be looking to carry their excellent league form into the group stage opener against Neymar and co.
Liverpool welcome Paris Saint-Germain to Anfield on Tuesday as the 2018/19 Champions League group stage gets underway.
The two most prolific teams in last season’s group stages go head-to-head in what is already being labelled the group of death.
Napoli and Red Star Belgrade complete Group C, but Jurgen Klopp’s men have nothing to fear after winning their opening five Premier League games.
The Reds finished runners-up in last season’s campaign following a heartbreaking final defeat to Real Madrid, who also eliminated Les Parisiens in the first knockout round.
The French champions contain some of the biggest stars in world football, including a front three of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani, who will provide the ultimate test for a Liverpool defence which has only conceded two goals in five games.
Jurgen Klopp (Liverpool): “Paris are one of the favourites for the competition, for sure.
“This team is built for winning the Champions League. They have unbelievable quality.
“I have said it before, I like these challenges, but I only like it because I have a really good football team. If I was not a manager, I would watch this game.”
Thomas Tuchel (PSG): “We know that Anfield is one of the toughest trips in Europe. Saint-Etienne [on Friday] was a good rehearsal.
“It was good for our confidence ahead of Tuesday’s match at Anfield against Liverpool. It will be a big test for us. We are confident, though.”
Reds forward Roberto Firmino could feature despite suffering a terrible-looking eye injury in the 2-1 win over Tottenham on Saturday.
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson was dropped to the bench at Wembley as Klopp admits he is still getting up to speed after missing a large chunk of pre-season.
Adam Lallana and Dejan Lovren are definitely out through injury.
PSG had the luxury of resting Neymar for Friday’s 4-0 Ligue 1 victory over Saint-Etienne, while Mbappe also sat out due to suspension. Both are expected to return to the starting line-up on Tuesday.
But they will be without Italians Marco Verratti and Gianluigi Buffon, both of whom are suspended for incidents in the competition last season.
Liverpool XI: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Milner, Henderson, Keita; Salah, Firmino, Mane.
PSG XI: Areola; Meunier, T. Silva, Kimpembe, Bernat; Marquinhos, Rabiot; Mbappe, Neymar, Di MAria; Cavani.
