Liverpool vs. Spartak Moscow: How to Watch in U.S. on Television and Live Stream

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool is in the Russian capital tonight to take on Spartak Moscow in the second game of Group E in the Champions League.

Klopp’s team drew with Sevilla in the opening match of the competition and has now made the 2,000-mile journey to Moscow.

The game kicks off at 2:45 p.m. Eastern Time and will be shown on Fox Sports 2 on television. It will also be live-streamed on fuboTV which you can find here. For U.K. viewers, coverage begins on BT Sport 2 at 6:45 p.m. BST with kick-off an hour later.

One of the main issues for Klopp ahead of the game has been how to fit all his attacking players into his team, with Philippe Coutinho available once again.

The Brazilian midfielder, who was reportedly the subject of a £140 million offer (about $188 million) from Barcelona last month, returned to action for Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Burnley 10 days ago. He fitted in, conveniently, for Sadio Mane, who was suspended after being dismissed for a high boot in the 5-0 defeat to Manchester City, and showed his quality against Leicester Sunday.

But Mane is available for European action, along with new signing Mohamed Salah, who has eased into life at Anfield with five goals, and Roberto Firmino. So Klopp has all Liverpool’s weapons at his disposal.

The German prefers a front-three of attacking players with two deeper midfielders behind. Should he remain with this formation, one of the four will have to watch from the sidelines Tuesday night.

Alternatively, Klopp could go all-out attack, play the quartet together and look to overpower Spartak with talent; Firmino upfront, Mane on the left and Salah on the right, with Coutinho picking up the No. 10 role in behind.

The issue for Klopp of late has not been his team’s attacking potential, though. Defensive woes have haunted the Liverpool manager, cost his team crucial points and irritated him in press conferences. So he may be unwilling to leave his defense even more exposed by adding to the attack.

Liverpool, meanwhile, has no new injury concerns. Klopp is still without Adam Lallana (thigh) and defender Nathaniel Clyne (hamstring).
