Liverpool vs AC Milan Betting Preview
Liverpool are unbeaten in the league so far, winning three of their four games, scoring nine and conceding one. The other match was a 1-1 draw against Chelsea, a disappointing result considering that the Blues were reduced to ten man for most of the match. Jurgen Klopp's men enter this match on the back of a comfortable 3-0 victory over Leeds on Sunday, extending their unbeaten streak to 13 matches in competitive action. Getting star defender Virgil van Dijk back from a long-term injury has obviously been a big boost as the Reds have already claimed three clean sheets in 4 top flight matches.
AC Milan have also made a strong start to the season, despite Gianluigi Donnarumma and playmaker Hakan Calhanoglu were high-profile departures over the summer. They won all three Serie A games. After a narrow win over Sampdoria (1-0), Stefano Pioli's men beat Cagliari 4-1 and Maurizio Sarri's Lazio 2-0. The Rossoneri are tied for first place with Roma, just behind Jose Mourinho’s on goal difference. They have allowed just one goal so far this season and looked rock solid at the back.
Liverpool (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, Matip, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago; Salah, Jota, Mane
The Merseysiders will be without youngster Harvey Elliott for an extended period after the midfielder suffered a horrific leg injury in Sunday’s victory over Leeds. Jordan Henderson will replace the youngster, with Fabinho and Thiago Alcantara completing the midfield trio. With Firmino still sidelined, there are no doubts that Diogo Jota, Sadio Manè and Mo Salah will form the trident. Curtis Jones, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Divock Origi provide further options.
AC Milan (4-2-3-1): Maignan; Calabria, Tomori, Romagnoli, Hernandez; Kessie, Tonali; Saelemaekers, Diaz, Leao; Rebic
Olivier Giroud is cleared to take part in this fixture after recovering from coronavirus and is in contention with Ante Rebic for the central forward role, as Zlatan Ibrahimovic is out through injury. Former Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko is also sidelined, meaning that Frank Kessie and Sandro Tonali will anchor the midfield. Alessio Romagnoli should continue to partner Fikayo Tomori in front of Mike Maignan at Anfield, with Theo Hernandez and Davide Calabria starting as full backs.
Liverpool vs AC Milan Betting Tips
Milan were knocked out of the Europa League last season by Manchester United and they probably struggle against English clubs' style of play. With Atletico Madrid and Porto also present in this pool, picking up maximum points on home turf could prove crucial for the Reds. It will be surely a hard-fought affair but we back Liverpool to win the match. The 2-0 scoreline is our pick in the Correct Score market while Trent Alexander-Arnold is our long-shot in the Goalscorer market.
