Alisson and Fabinho to return? How Liverpool could line up against Atletico

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is hoping to call upon an almost fully fit squad for the club's Champions League trip to Madrid

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will be hoping to see a fully-fit side battle for all three points when his team take on Atletico Madrid in the Champions League on Tuesday.

The Anfield side were able to bring off a number of key players during their 5-0 demolition of Watford on Saturday and should have most of their key players to pick from.

Despite being a doubt for the game, Liverpool are still expected to start Alisson in goals in place of Caoimhin Kelleher, who started at the weekend. And in front of the towering shot-stopper we can expect to see a typical back four of Andy Robertson, Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Similarly, Fabinho has been marked down as a potential doubt for this game, but he should also make a miraculous recovery in time to face the Spanish giants and play in a midfield trio alongside Jordan Henderson and James Milner, who will continue to fill in for the injured Thiago Alcantara.

Up front, Klopp will be relieved to have his trusted trio of Sadio Mane on the left, Mohamed Salah on the right and then Roberto Firmino through the middle as a false No.9.
