LIVE
Post.
As always, thank you for joining us tonight! See you tomorrow for some more Champions League action!
90'
FT: Liverpool 2-1 Genk. Not as comfortable of a win as it was two weeks ago, but Klopp's men get the job done at home despite Genk's best efforts.
90'
Three minutes of added time in Liverpool!
89'
Origi comes off for Firmino in the last few minutes of the game.
85'
Mazzu decides to make a double alteration as De Norre makes way for Onuachu. There are five minutes of normal time left to play.
85'
Genk make their second change of the game with Bongonda coming on in place of Hrosovsky.
83'
We've barely heard from De Norre in the game but within a minute, he's produced a sensational cross and then goes into the book for dissent.
76'
Free kick to Liverpool over on the left, which gives Robertson his first involvement as he puts a deep cross in. However, it goes behind for a corner.
73'
A double change for Liverpool as goalscorer Chamberlain is replaced by Sadio Mane and Naby Keita comes off for Roberston.
70'
Dewaest attempts to float the ball in behind the hosts’ defence for De Norre, but the flag is up for offside.
68'
First change of the game and it's Genk who make the first move with Ito being replaced by Ndongala.
66'
OVER THE BAR! Liverpool are playing some absolutely sensational stuff here. Salah backheels the ball for Milner who dribbles a little way with it before it gets away from him and allows Alexander-Arnold to have a shot from the top of the area. However, he lifts it well over the crossbar and that wasn't his best really.
63'
BLOCK! Origi cuts in from the left, slides the ball to Salah, who flicks it on for Wijnaldum. From the centre of the box, the Dutchman fires straight at Cuesta who was quickly across to make the block.
61'
Liverpool clearly looking for more here as Genk can't seem to get a break. Corner for the Reds.
57'
The usual for Liverpool as Coucke is forced into a save from a corner with some very skilful play starting to come out as they look to add a few more.
55'
Some stats for you as Liverpool keep their strong possession: that's four goals in four games for the Ox having previously scored just five in his first 53 appearances for Liverpool. Pretty great comeback for injury he's making.
52'
Another sensational goal against Genk for Oxlade-Chamberlain! A loose Genk clearance is picked up by Salah just inside the area, who uses his strength to keep Cuesta behind him before tapping the ball into the pah of Oxlade-Chamberlain. He took one touch to control before hitting home on the turn, sending a powerful shot past the goalkeeper. Wonderful.
51'
GOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLL!!!!!!
49'
Origi tries his luck from 25 yards! It is curling into the far corner but Coucke gets a strong left hand down to it and smothers the ball. It was bending in and the Genk goalkeeper had to act.
45'
Second half underway!
45'
HT: Liverpool 1-1 Genk. The hosts have dominated from the very beginning, but on their first shot on target, Genk manages to equalise. Exciting game. See you in 15!
45'
One minute of added time and the Genk fans are seen celebrating. They can't quite believe it either. What a goal that was.
41'
Genk are level! Heynen whips a dangerous cross into the box following a corner to the left, and Samatta leaps above Milner before powerfully heading the ball beyond Alisson and into the top left corner. What a header!
40'
GOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLL FOR THE VISITORS!
38'
CRUCIAL BLOCK! Oxlade-Chamberlain plays a neat throughball down the right side of the penalty area for Salah, who chips the ball back across goal.
36'
JUST WIDE! Keita finds Milner down the left before the Englishman feeds a pass into the path of Salah. After surging into the penalty area, the winger pulls his left-footed shot wide of the far post from a tight angle. So many chances!
32'
Genk drive forward down the right flank through Maehle, but his low cross is easily claimed by Alisson who immediately looks to set Liverpool off on the attack once more.
30'
Liverpool enjoying a cool 78% of possession here. Tough job for Genk at the moment.
26'
Milner, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Origi combine – but the latter is flagged offside. There is so much going on, so much for Genk to handle! Strong performance from Origi and Chamberlain, who are not used to getting a place in the starting line-ups.
26'
Milner, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Origi combine – but the latter is flagged offside. There is so much going on, so much for Genk to handle! Strong performance from Origi and Chamberlain, who are not used to getting a place in the starting line-ups.
24'
DOUBLE CHANCE! Following a quick counter, Oxlade-Chamberlain slides the ball to his left for Keita, who sees his left-footed efforted from a difficult angle saved by Coucke. After the first stop, the ball comes back to the Guinian midfielder, whose follow-up strike is blocked by Dewaest from only a few yards out.
22'
Lucumi is booked for his action.
22'
FREE KICK! It's going to be a long night for this Genk defence and they give away a very dangerous free kick as Lucumi pulls down Salah just by the top right corner.
20'
Origi does well to control Milner’s powerful pass in the centre of the park before holding off three Genk defenders and laying it off to Fabinho. The hosts are continuing to work the ball around patiently as they look to force an opening.
16'
Not long after, Genk win a free kick around 40 yards out. It's pinged forward and Dewaest is the intended target towards the back post, but he cannot get there in time.
14'
A lovely, reaction finish from Wijnaldum and Liverpool are ahead inside 14 minutes! Origi slips in Milner down the left with his cross pinging off the leg of Cuesta. It lands to Dewaest but he cannot clear it properly as he and Coucke scramble to keep it out. But Wijnaldum is in the middle and flicks the ball over the goalkeeper and into the back of the net.
13'
GOAAAAAAAALLLLL!!!!
11'
A brief stoppage as Maehle gets caught in the back of the head by Milner.
8'
Corner for Liverpool! It’s taken preposterously quick, but Salah cannot connect properly with the pass. Liverpool, who are dominating possession, will go again.
7'
Wijnaldum finds himself in plenty of space down the right-hand side of the field, but his whipped cross is delivered straight into the arms of Coucke.
3'
Energetic start to the game as Liverpool get the possession but the Belgian visitors - in white this time - try their best to compete here.
1'
And we're off!!
Prev.
Kick-off in 15 minutes! Things are heating up in Anfield...
Prev.
Meanwhile, Genk's Colombian defensive duo Lucumi and Cuesta is back and although their last result against the Reds - a 4-1 in their only previous meeting - doesn't do them justice, it should prove troublesome for Liverpool's usually unused players.
Prev.
The Scot is on the bench, alongside Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino, though Klopp will hope he does not have to call on any of the trio. Divock Origi gets the nod up front and Fabinho in midfield, while Oxlade-Chamberlain will play out wide and Gomez replaces Lovren.
Prev.
Jürgen Klopp makes six changes, with James Milner filling in at left-back in the absence of Andy Robertson, who is given a breather ahead of the big one on Sunday against Manchester City.
Prev.
Liverpool starting XI: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, van Dijk, Gomez, Milner; Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Keïta; Salah, Origi, Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Prev.
Genk starting XI: Coucke; Maehle, De Norre, Lucumí, Cuesta; Heynen, Hrosovsky, Dewaest, Berge; Ito, Samatta.
Prev.
Let's take a look ath those line-ups, shall we?
Prev.
Hello and wlecome to our live coverage of this evening's UCL clash in Anfield!
