Salah assists in Liverpool's 2-1 win against Genk

Ally Mbwana Samatta levelled with a header four minutes before half-time.

The Reds welcome the Belgians to Anfield on Tuesday, with Jurgen Klopp's men now second in Group E, having collected six points from their first three pool games.

Signs for Man City to exploit?

Jurgen Klopp made six changes to the side that defeated Villa, with Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino dropping to the bench among others.

The 26-year-old, who scored against Liverpool in his side's 2-1 Champions League defeat on Tuesday, has a release clause in his contract reported to be about £10m.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp explained how his strategy, which was around Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's position, paid off during the Reds' 2-1 win over Genk in the Champions League Tuesday night.

Berge certainly caught the eye over the two games with Liverpool, and looks set to have a very bright future.

That is the price they have to pay for success.

"Every game is tough in the Champions League".

Still, Liverpool was dominant after the break and restored its lead with 53 minutes on the clock - Oxlade-Chamberlain getting his fourth goal in as many games to potentially put himself in contention for a start against Manchester City at the weekend.

"I thought we were good at times", Milner told BT Sport after the match. We had a lot of shots and some really big chances that we usually use.

"The players came through but you saw after a while it gets hard to get that rhythm and at the end of the game it was not there". It was job done.

"That worked pretty well sometimes and we could have scored more often. Now we are all good".

The Reds are unbeaten in all competitions at Anfield this season ahead of the visit of the Belgian side.

In the 53rd minute Salah sent a cross to Alex Oxlade Chamberlain, who fired in the net to snatch all three points for Liverpool.
