Confirmed: Liverpool lineup v KRC Genk at Anfield

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

Oxlade-Chamberlain went down clutching his right ankle in the 35th minute of the Reds' 2-1 win over the Belgian champions following a strong tackle from Sander Berge.

Georginio Wijnaldum stabbed into the roof of the net from close range after captain Sebastian Dewaest made a mess of clearing James Milner's low cross.

Liverpool took an early lead through Georginio Wijnaldum before Ally Mbwana Samata levelled in the 41st but Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain got the victor eight minutes into the second half.

The defeat left Genk rooted to the bottom of the group and dashed their hopes of qualifying for the next round with just a single point after four matches but Samatta assured they will end their group campaign on a high with fixtures against RB Salzburg and Napoli coming up next.

The Tanzanian has six goals from 13 league games this campaign.

The biggest talking point a couple of hours before kick-off was Liverpool's decision to play their Carabao Cup quarter-final at Aston Villa and Club World Cup semi-final in Qatar within 24 hours of each other, fielding two separate teams.

- ESPN Champions League fantasy: Sign up now! "It's a tough group", said Klopp.

"'Job done' is the headline for the game, pretty much, but the group is not decided".

But credit to Genk, who didn't lie down, even after taking their most unsafe player, Junya Ito, off and replacing him with Dieumerci Ndongala.

After a somewhat reserved first half an hour, Genk became more aggressive in their approach and began to press Liverpool higher up the pitch. We don't have easy games. That gave them a lot of energy. The first half was done and we had to start anew.

"We got a little bit of trouble but not really. Now we are all good". Any thought that the reintroduction of Alisson would lead to a return of frequent clean sheets is long gone.
