Salah wants improved English Premier League showing from Liverpool

Predicted Liverpool XI v Maribor

Denis Sme will miss Tuesday's match for Maribor, who now sit in last place on the league table.

The Reds have so far drawn both their opening matches in Group E, being held at home to Sevilla before sharing the spoils with Spartak in Moscow.

The Senegalese winger picked up a hamstring duty while on worldwide duty with his national side and is sidelined for six weeks.

Jurgen Klopp has confirmed Loris Karius will start in goal for Liverpool, and the Reds are also without Sadio Mane - who picked up a hamstring injury during the recent worldwide break.

The Reds got off to a great start after poor build up play from Maribor saw them surrender possession in a unsafe area.

The Champions League match between Maribor and Liverpool will be broadcast live on Fox Soccer Plus.

Having failed to convert their dominance into victory in Moscow last time out, the Reds have the chance to claim only their second Champions League away win in nearly eight years - their last came against Debrecen in November 2009.

With Maribor's resistance well and truly broken, Liverpool were able to relax knowing that a first three-point haul of the season in Champions League competition was on the way. The side is in second place with 28 points through 12 games.

Things have seldom been easy for the English striker in the last few seasons, with a spate of injuries bringing his progress to a grinding halt.

Roberto Firmino handed them the flawless start inside four minutes on Slovenian soil. "Maribor is the place they [Liverpool] should rotate". The Slovenian side though, is an unknown quantity, something Liverpool will have to be wary about, and their defensive frailties are likely to come to the fore once again. The Hard Tackle predicts a hard-fought 2-1 win for Klopp's men.
