Mo Salah has a chance to emulate a record set by Luis Suarez on Tuesday night as Jurgen Klopp’s side travel to face Sevilla, with a win potentially securing top place in Group E.

Liverpool sit top of the group after back to back victories over Maribor saw them race ahead with eight points, their opponents Sevilla sit on seven points while Spartak Moscow are also in the hunt on five.

A win will secure progression to the last 16 for Jurgen Klopp’s side while even a draw or defeat will still see Liverpool handed a second chance in their final game at home to Moscow. If the Russian side fail to win and Liverpool defeat Sevilla, Liverpool will automatically top the group.

On form Mohamed Salah however, has a chance to equal a record set by Luis Suarez in December 2013.

If the Egyptian number 11 scores a brace at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium, he will become the first Liverpool player to score two goals in three successive matches since the Uruguayan achieved that feat.

Klopp’s side will be without Joel Matip after the centre-half missed Liverpool’s weekend victory over Southampton over the weekend. Nathaniel Clyne is also continuing his recovery from minor back surgery.

Liverpool will be boosted by the return of Adam Lallana and Danny Ings to the squad, with both players coming back off long injury layoffs and were named in Klopp’s squad to travel to Spain.
