But it was wing-back Trippier who was named man of the match. Here is a look at how the England defender fared.

Trippier: What Next?

It is a big week for Trippier and Atletico, with matches against Salzburg and city rivals Real Madrid up next.

Despite their impressive start in La Liga, Atletico still have work to do if they are to secure Champions League progression.

A point in the Salzburg game on Wednesday would be enough, before the Madrid derby on Saturday provides a big test of their title credentials.
