Liverpool vs Atletico Madrid LIVE: Stream, TV channel, team news as Jota and Fabinho RETURN to XI

GOOD EVENING FROM LIVERPOOL

Welcome to our live coverage of the Champions League clash between Liverpool and Atletico Madrid at Anfield.

Reds manager Jurgen Klopp has been boosted by Fabinho and Thiago Alcantara’s recent return to training.

Thiago has been dealing with a calf issue whereas the Brazil international has been nursing a knee problem.

However, Naby Keita is set to be “out for a while” due to a hamstring injury he suffered during Saturday’s draw with Brighton.

James Milner and Harvey Elliott are still sidelined due to a hamstring injury and dislocated ankle respectively.

This means Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could make a rare start in midfield next to Curtis Jones and captain Jordan Henderson.

Atletico boss Diego Simeone, on the other hand, will be without Antoine Griezmann and Stefan Savic, who are suspended.

Griezmann was sent off in the first leg at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium last month following a horror challenge on Roberto Firmino.

Savic was slapped with a four-match ban last season for “assaulting another player and directing abusive language at a match official” during a Last 16 clash with Chelsea that saw him getting booked with a red card.

Thomas Lemar remains sidelined with a muscle injury whereas Marcos Llorente and Geoffrey Kondogbia are doubts due to a muscle problem and concussion respectively
