Liverpool face the first of two Champions League dead rubbers tonight as Jurgen Klopp’s side gear up to host Porto at Anfield.

The Reds have already clinched themselves a place in the last 16 next year, and an already confirmed top spot in Group B, after picking up four wins from four in Europe this season.

Tonight’s game and their trip to Milan next month will have no impact on their progress and Klopp is expected to rotate his team.

With Southampton and Everton on the horizon in the next week, Klopp has hinted Jordan Henderson and Andy Robertson will be given an extended recovery slot.

Alisson, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Sadio Mane could also be handed a rest with Caoimhin Kelleher, Neco Williams and Takumi Minamino on hand to step up.

But the big news could be on a Champions League debut for 19-year-old Tyler Morton following his cameo against Arsenal last weekend.
