Ian Doyle: How great are the Danes? Nobody really knows, but a 4-0 home loss to Atalanta in their first group game in the Champions League suggests they may be the weakest in the section.
So Liverpool can expect changes for today’s game.
Not in defense. With Joel Matip still out, the Back Five have no choice but to continue.
It gets more interesting elsewhere. A little bit.
James Milner seems to be the Champions League guy this season and can start in midfield with Jordan Henderson.
There should also be a role for Curtis Jones to make another start in what will hopefully be an easier encounter than last week’s Holland – you can imagine that the visitors will primarily be trying to defend themselves.
Diogo Jota has to start at the front, but I’d have him on the left and give Sadio Mane a breather. So does Roberto Firmino, with Takumi Minamino, who has a deserved run through the middle.
With five substitutions allowed, Mane and Firmino will certainly still play a decent role if necessary.
My team (4-3-3) : Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Gomez, Robertson; Henderson, Milner, Jones; Salah, Minamino, Jota
“Jota gets the nod with Shaqiri and Minamino”
Paul Gorst: So the obvious group B whipping boys are in town – but Jürgen Klopp won’t consider Midtjylland as such when they arrive tonight.
With West Ham United at Anfield on Saturday night, the Reds boss will no doubt be delighted to see that game take place on Tuesday rather than Wednesday.
And he will also be pleased that he can make up to five submarines for the celebrations of this evening. Given that, after much deliberation, it does, and I think we might see some rotation.
Alisson Becker starts behind the usual foursome in the gate. Given that Joel Matip is still not there, it makes sense to leave Fabinho left and right alongside Joe Gomez and Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold.
I’ll believe the 4-2-3-1 that was used after the weekend win over Sheffield United, but I’ll remember James Milner alongside captain Jordan Henderson as there is no Thiago Alcantara. Gini Wijnaldum can rest.
In the first four I give Diogo Jota the nod in the ‘hole’ behind the first three from Xherdan Shaqiri, Takumi Minamino and Sadio Mane.
Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah can wait in the starting blocks if necessary.

Connor Dunn: As both Ian and Paul have indicated, tonight’s game against FC Midtjylland is an opportunity for Liverpool to make some changes.
However, on defense, these are the last five you would expect me to be if I played against Alisson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Fabinho and Andy Robertson.
It gets a little more interesting further up though and I would like to see some liquid attack the 4-2-3-1 formation at Anfield, convinced that Liverpool have a chance to score many goals.
In the two, Jordan Henderson starts alongside James Milner, who seems to be the man for a European Cup night.
At the top is Roberto Firmino after scoring his goal against Sheffield United. This is a chance to get him further in shape.
Behind him in my three come Diogo Jota, Takumi Minamino and Sadio Mane from left to right.
Mohamed Salah can wait in the starting blocks to take the game to the next level, while Curtis Jones and Xherdan Shaqiri also influence the ability to switch five in the Champions League.
My team(4-2-3-1): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Fabinho, Robertson; Henderson, Milner; Jota, Minamino, Mähne; Firmino.
“Williams and Milner as full-backs”
Dan Kay: Liverpool got the Champions League off to a perfect start this season with their hard-fought win at Ajax last week. Klopp wants to qualify for the knockout round as soon as possible, but today’s game offers the perfect opportunity to use the squad.
The boss went out of his way during his pre-game press conference to underline that he and his side will not underestimate the challenge of FC Midtjylland, but they appear to be the weakest side in the group.
The Reds have much better depth in depth these days, but to get the most out of the roster in this uniquely compressed season the fringes will need game time, and I expect some of them will have some time tonight when the boss that can use the new allowed assignment of five changes in the game.
Alisson starts in goal as he only returned to the side after an injury at the weekend and the Reds in the center-back don’t have too many options. Joe Gomez and Fabinho should continue there as it is likely a little too early for Rhys Williams to pick up a championship league kicks off after his brief substitute appearance in Amsterdam last week. Neco Williams and James Milner come into play with their backs full.
Curtis Jones had a first European start against Ajax and didn’t let anyone down despite being addicted during the break. Jordan Henderson and Gini Wijnaldum will again provide engine room experience tonight.
Last week Klopp signed “main front three” every hour on the hour against Ajax and while he may be tempted to give the second string trio of Jota, Minamino and Shaqiri a start tonight, I can see he’s at least one the big one wants. Mane gets the nod with Salah and Firmino taking a rest before West Ham United’s visit on Saturday.
My team (4-3-3): Alisson, N. Williams, Fabinho, Gomez, Milner, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Jones, Mane, Minamino, Jota
