After a controversy-laden 1-1 draw at Old Trafford on the weekend, Liverpool face an away task versus Genk in the UEFA Champions League.

Jurgen Klopp’s redmen will be looking to return to winning ways on Wednesday night, having drawn to their fierce rivals on Sunday.

They face a Genk side who are yet to win group E of the UEFA Champions League so far this season. The Belgian side have conceded six goals in their opening two games, whilst only scoring twice themselves.

For Liverpool, this signifies a test that they will be hoping to pass with flying colours. Their quest to defend the prestigious European crown didn’t start perfectly, with a defeat in Naples and a stuttering win at home to Salzburg.

However, with Mo Salah returning from injury, Klopp and his players will be confident when they head to Belgium on Wednesday night. Here, we outline five key battles that the Reds must win across the pitch.
