THE TEAM NEWS

LIVERPOOL

  • Captain Henderson returned to training on Sunday and will face a late fitness test but goalkeeper Alisson has been ruled out again.
  • Robertson was left out against Bournemouth on Saturday as a precaution but is expected to be fit, while the front three picks itself.

Unavailable: Clyne (Injured), Shaqiri (Injured), Larouci (Injured), Alisson (Injured)

ATLETICO MADRID

  • Atletico Madrid travel to Merseyside with a slender advantage but they have only won one of their last six away Champions League games.
  • Partey returns in midfield after missing Saturday's draw with Sevilla due to injury but winger Lemar remains an injury doubt.
  • Morata ended his eight-week goal drought against Sevilla and is expected to be preferred to Diego Costa up front, with Correa in support.

Predicted line-up (4-4-1-1): Oblak; Trippier, Felipe, Savic, Renan Lodi; Koke, Partey, Llorente, Saul; Correa; Morata

Unavailable:

Doubtful: Renan Lodi (Injured), Lemar (Injured), Morata (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Liverpool are in probably their worst form of the season but they have nevertheless won 19 of their 21 home matches this season, and have not lost a Champions League game at Anfield since 2014. Atletico have not been as strong away from home this term and with Jurgen Klopp's cheered on by the fervent Anfield crowd, they should eventually break Simeone's men and get the win on the night.
