The forward suffered an abrasion of the eye following a clash with Jan Vertonghen.

Neymar and Kylian Mbappe will return for PSG after being rested for the French champions’ 4-0 victory over St Etienne.

The two sides have faced each other just twice before in an official competition. Liverpool won the first leg of the 1997 Cup Winners’ Cup semi-final 2-0, but PSG went through with a 3-0 second-leg win before losing in the final against Barcelona.

Predicted starting line-ups:

Liverpool: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson, Milner, Wijnaldum, Keita, Salah, Sturridge, Mane.

PSG: Areola; Meunier, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Rabiot, Verratti, Di María, Mbappe, Cavani, Neymar.
