Klopp: Liverpool can´t play for a draw against Spartak

Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool face a defensive crisis for their Premier League trip to Brighton Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool face a defensive crisis for their Premier League trip to Brighton

Sat on nine points, Liverpool have the most marginal of leads on both Spartak Moscow and Sevilla.

Klopp has a team that can tear teams apart with their pace and attacking brilliance and not many sides in England can live with their attacking line, but I still worry the weaknesses at the back could be exposed if the pressure is cranked up a few levels.

The Reds were up 3-0 at half-time before Sevilla completed a dramatic comeback in stoppage time.

"I know a lot of people might think we should be already through but that's not life, it is not "if" and "when", it is about the moment".

Gomez is expected to replace Trent Alexander-Arnold at right-back while Klavan should come in to the defence alongside Dejan Lovren with Joel Matip ruled out with a thigh injury.

Three years ago the five-time European champions needed to win at home to Basel to progress but a draw dropped Brendan Rodgers' side into the Europa League.

Liverpool are on an eight-match unbeaten run heading into the clash, having moved into fourth in the Premier League. Russian winger Dimitri Kombarov has broken a rib and will be unavailable for Wednesday night's match.

The Reds host Spartak needing only a point to qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League.

Spartak have won only six of their past 40 Champions League games (D8 L26).

Spartak have only kept one clean sheet in their last 15 games in this competition.

While the difference between finishing first and second is minimal this year, with Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Juventus all potential opponents even if Jürgen Klopp's side win Group E, it would surely act as a psychological boost at the least.

Liverpool take on APOEL in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday before taking on Everton in the Merseyside derby.
