Jurgen Klopp is expecting a raucous welcome for his first game as Liverpool manager at Anfield.

They take on Russian side Rubin Kazan in the Europa League looking for their first win in the competition this season.

The first two games under manager Brendan Rodgers were uninspiring draws, and a victory tonight would set them up nicely for the rest of the campaign with five points from three matches.

Liverpool drew their opening game under Jurgen Klopp at the weekend 0-0, a tough fixture away to Tottenham Hotspur, and this evening is a good opportunity to record a win heading into the Premier League clash at home to Southampton on Sunday.

The competition will provide the former Borussia Dortmund manager a good chance to learn more about his players, and this games gives them an early chance to impress the German.

Rubin Kazan have had a tough start to the season in their homeland, sitting 12th in the table with three wins from 12 matches.
