  10. Lallana not risked against Spartak

    Liverpool v Spartak Moscow (Wednesday, 19:45 GMT)

    The 29-year-old was absent for the away wins at Stoke and Brighton in the last week after making his first appearance of the season as a substitute in the 1-1 draw with Chelsea last month.

    "He is keen, how you can imagine, but meanwhile he is old enough to know there are a lot of important years to come for him, a lot of important games to come for him, and it's not about the next one - it's about being best prepared for all the rest," Klopp explains.

    Lallana joined Liverpool from Southampton in 2014

    Maurico Pochettino got most animated when he was asked about reports that midfielder Victor Wanyama could be out for another 14 weeks.

    The Kenyan has not played since August due to a knee injury.

    Pochettino said it would be a few more weeks before Wanyama was fit again but, when asked specifically if it would be another three-and-a-half months, he said "14 weeks, no, that is not true.

    "Victor will have a scan this week and then we will see but it won't be another 14 weeks."

  13. Blues bid to top table
