This Tuesday sees Liverpool face Atletico Madrid in the Champions League. The Reds are set to journey to the scene of their 2019 Champions League triumph as they look to get the best of Diego Simeone’s side. Here is our predicted Liverpool lineup to face Atletico Madrid:
Goalkeeper: Alisson Becker
The Brazilian pulled off a superlative piece of goalkeeping to keep the ball out against Norwich. He will be key in Madrid.
Right back: Trent Alexander-Arnold
Trent didn’t have his best game at the weekend, making a few sloppy errors, however he was unlucky to finish without an assist.
Centre back: Joe Gomez
The Englishman is undoubtedly one of the best central defenders in the world at the moment.
Centre back: Virgil van Dijk
He will be vital to keeping a determined Atletico side at bay.
Left back: Andy Robertson
Robbo will have his hands full given that the Madrid side boast some incredibly talented wingers.
Defensive midfield: Fabinho
The best defensive midfielder in the world should be trusted with a start following his full recuperation from injury.
Centre midfield: Jordan Henderson
Captain fantastic is in the form of his life, having Fabinho back could unleash him further.
Centre midfield: Gini Wijnaldum
The Dutchman will be essential to us keeping the ball away from home.
Right wing: Mo Salah
Unlucky to not beat Tim Krul at the weekend, the Egyptian King has been in fine form recently.
Left wing: Sadio Mane
Sadio was the hero at the weekend. He could be the hero again on Tuesday night.
Striker: Bobby Firmino
With The Reds likely to hit the hosts on the counter we will be relying on Bobby’s decision making.
