"First of all, there is absolutely no reason to think about that; I can not think before each game about a 3-0 lead and then that the other team will come back", Klopp stated. Sat on nine points, Liverpool have the most marginal of leads on both Spartak Moscow and Sevilla. "I have a team to prepare for tomorrow". While Group E is undoubtedly the group to watch, Liverpool will feel their form in this seasons campaign has not been up to scratch.

Jurgen Klopp's men have scored at least three goals in their last three Champions League outings.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has made it his policy to bring in goalkeeper Loris Karius for Champions League matches and also regularly rotate his young full-backs Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez.

Three years ago the five-time European champions needed to win at home to Basel to progress but a draw dropped Brendan Rodgers' side into the Europa League. Top managers now have technical people working at clubs telling them that some players are entering "zones" of fitness that means they are close to an injury and managers take that advice on board when they make team selections. Russian winger Dimitri Kombarov has broken a rib and will be unavailable for Wednesday night's match.

The institutional investor owned 398,336 shares of the software company's stock after selling 19,009 shares during the quarter. Jefferies maintained the stock with "Buy" rating in Friday, September 18 report. 910 are held by Mitsubishi Ufj Secs Ltd.

Left-back Dmitri Kombarov is unlikely to feature after breaking a rib in a 3-1 win over Zenit St Petersburg last Monday, while long-term absentees Artem Timofeev and Jano Ananidze are out.

The Reds are unbeaten in their last seven Champions League games - although five of those have ended with draws.

However, Klopp has reiterated that he is not concerned about any bid, instead claiming that he is only focused on the club's important Champions League clash with Spartak Moscow.

Spartak have reached the knockout stages of the Champions League only once in their 11 previous appearances - in 1995-96.
