Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool visit Russian Premier League champions Spartak Moscow on Tuesday night in their first Champions League away game of the 2017/18 campaign.

The Reds were held to a 2-2 draw at home to Sevilla in the opening game whilst Spartak drew 1-1 away at Maribor.

Not including qualifiers, Liverpool have failed to win a Champions League away game since November 2009.

Rafael Benitez's side beat Hungarian outfit Debrecen 1-0 in the final group game but it wasn't enough to progress to the last 16.

We've taken a look at the eleven who started the last time Liverpool secured an away win in the Champions League.

Not a single player of the 18 can be found at Liverpool FC today.

The Spanish goalkeeper spent nine years at Anfield and, at 35, is still the number one for Serie A giants Napoli.
