Jurgen Klopp and Mo Salah - This is Anfield

Matchday six of the UEFA Champions League gets underway on Tuesday evening with the Group A to D fixtures.

At 19:45 this evening PSG will be up against Club Brugge at the Parc de Princes, while at the RB Arena, Leipzig will take on the English Premiership champions, Manchester City.

At 22:00, AC Milan will host Liverpool at the San Siro.

Following five wins from five and already having qualified for the next round, Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, said they will rotate the squad and at stage it remains to be seen if the striker, Mo Salah, will be playing in Milan.

“We have to rotate, we will rotate. We have to rotate, that is the headline.

“The medical department would smash me if I played the same side again, so I will make changes.

“If you have fresh legs, you can have higher energy levels and if you have that you have a chance to have a good game, that's exactly the idea behind it."

“I cannot change all the line-up. We need players on the pitch so I can't rotate and start with nine, that's not possible.

“We will see if Mo Salah plays or not and if he plays or scores or not but the players are very understanding about the situation. We want to field the best possible side for the situation we are in.”

In some of tonight's other fixtures, Porto face Atletico, Ajax Amsterdam host Sporting and Real Madrid are at home to Inter Milan.
