Liverpool turn their attention from the Premier League title race to the Champions League next up when they host Bayern Munich at Anfield on February 19.

The Reds will have a 10-day break between games and face a Bayern side struggling to match their past dominance in the Bundesliga this season.

Liverpool have also been knocked off top spot in the Premier League table, though, and will take on a resurgent Manchester United side just five days after this European showdown.

Jurgen Klopp's side returned to form and winning ways with a 3-0 win over Bournemouth last time out - a match which also saw them welcome Trent Alexander-Arnold back from injury.

There are still concerns for last season's beaten finalists, though, and here Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news.
