Liverpool are in for a busy month in March with six games in four weeks. The Reds have ticked off the first two matches with wins against Norwich and West Ham respectfully. But they now face their third trip to Anfield in a week as they host Inter Milan in the Champions League. 

The previous leg of this tie saw Jurgen Klopp's men come away from the San Siro with a two goal lead. They overcame the Italian Champions 2-0 with second half goals from Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah

Since then, the Nerazzurri have won just one game in their previous four matches, beating Salernitana 5-0 at the weekend. 

Liverpool, on the other hand, are coming into the game having won five out of their last five matches since the first leg, including their win in the Carabao Cup final against Chelsea

Klopp confirmed in today's press conference that Thiago Alcantara, Joel Matip and Firmino are all back in full training following their absence in Saturday's 1-0 win against West Ham. However, the boss did not confirm whether they would be fully fit to feature in Tuesday's game. 

Inter Milan are yet again without their midfield maestro Nicolo Barella who is unavailable after picking up a two match suspension against Real Madrid in the group stage.

The Nerazzurri may also line up with Joaquin Correa in attack after a busy schedule has seen Edin Dzeko and Lautaro Martinez start the majority of the games.

The away side have been given a boost with Ivan Perisic available after missing out on their last match with an injury.

Predicted line ups

Liverpool (4-3-3): Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, Konate, Robertson, Fabinho, Henderson, Keita, Salah, Mane, Jota

Inter (3-5-2): Handanovic, Skriniar, de Brij, Bastoni, Dumfries, Vidal, Brozovic, Calhanoglu, Perisic, Martinez, Correa

First leg

Inter's 5-0 win saw Lautaro Martinez bag himself a hattrick as they went within two points of AC Milan at the top of Serie A with a game in hand of their neighbours. 

The Argentine has 14 goals and two assists in 25 league matches for Simone Inzaghi's side. However the number ten is yet to score in the Champions League and will be hungry to open his account in the competition at Anfield.

Someone who Inter will be well aware of is Mohamed Salah. The Egyptian's instinctive first time strike put the nail in the coffin in the first leg at the San Siro. 

Liverpool's star man is top scorer in the Premier League with 19 goals and second in assists to Trent Alexander-Arnold with 10 assists. And despite an astonishing eight goals in seven matches in the Champions League, he is third behind Robert Lewandowski in second and Sébastien Haller who bosses an amazing 11 goals in seven games.

Inter will need to watch out for Salah who will definitely be looking to chase down Haller to the top goal scorer spot. 

Where to watch

The match will be shown live on BT Sport 2 with coverage starting at 7PM GMT and kick-off at 8PM GMT.
