However, the Reds will face the Dutch champions instead as well as strong Serie A side and Jerez, who beat PSV Eindhoven to qualify.

In contrast, Chelsea had an easy draw with AC Milan, Red Bull Salzburg and Dinamo Zagreb.

Liverpool have won the European Cup six times, most recently beating Tottenham in Madrid in the 2019 final.

They came within 90 minutes of the seventh crown in May before falling to a goal by Vinicius Jr in a chaotic trip to Paris.

This season, they boast the added strength of striker Darwin Nunez who has signed a club record £84m – also joined by Fabio Carvalho.

However, Klopp’s side suffered a difficult start to the season with two draws and a defeat against troubled Manchester United to start their Premier League campaign.

Sadio Mane’s departure to Bayern Munich is being felt while Champions League champion Divock Origi has become perennial at AC Milan.
