Origi earns a start – How Liverpool could line up against Milan

Divock Origi was the hero at the weekend and could earn a Champions League start for Liverpool.

Liverpool and Milan will approach their final Champions League group stage match under very different circumstances.

Liverpool had top spot in Group B sewn up after just four matches, while Milan can still finish second, third or fourth depending on results across the group.

With the busy December period in the Premier League already underway and nothing riding on this game, Liverpool will undoubtedly make wholesale changes for the trip to the San Siro.

Alisson started the last match against Porto, but this could be an opportunity for Caoimhin Kelleher to play and be able to impress.

Neco Williams should start at right-back after impressing against Porto and Kostas Tsimikas should return to the side on the left-hand side of defence.

Joe Gomez has been injured for over a month but returned to training last week, and he could partner Ibrahima Konate in central defence.

The same can be said for Naby Keita who could get some valuable minutes ahead of both the winter period in England and the African Cup of Nations in January.

Tyler Morton made his Champions League debut against Porto and should start again, with James Milner likely to get his first start in over month and take the captain’s armband.

Divock Origi did classic Divock Origi things for Liverpool at the weekend, springing off the bench to score deep in stoppage time to beat Wolves away from home.

The Belgian should start alongside Takumi Minamino who has looked sharp in recent weeks, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain likely to complete the starting XI.
