Alisson has been by far the busier of the two keepers as he is once again called in to action to deny Lemar.

43' 

Alisson comes way out of his area to beat Griezmann to a long ball, but his clearance smashes against Matip and almost drops for the Atletico forward with an empty net in front of him. Fortunately for Liverpool, the keeper sticks out a knee and clears at the second attempt.

41' 

Atletico look the better side now. They sweep it wide to Joao Felix in acres of space on the left. He drives into the box but sees his low strike well saved by Alisson.

Griezmann rampages on to a long ball from inside his own half. He bears down on Alisson but the Brazilian makes a superb one-on-one stop to keep Liverpool in charge.

Liverpool press forward looking to restore their two-goal cushion but Firmino fires off target from long range.

It's certainly game on. Almost lost in the midst of that, is the fact UEFA have awarded the opener to Salah which means the Egyptian becomes the first player in Liverpool history to score in NINE consecutive appearances in all competitions.

Virgil can Dijk: "We don't need any extra motivation. We are playing in the Champions League, the most prestigious cup in Europe. The boys worked hard for it last year to make sure that we play Champions League. We just want to go out there and show our qualities. The only thing we will use from the game that we played last time is to analyse them. We don't need extra motivation. We know how tough it's going to be and we have to be very good to get a good result. We are looking forward to it."

Klopp on Atletico: “We lost both games the last time against them. I'm a positive person but I'm not that positive to think we have these games in our pockets. They have changed players and system so we face a different animal, but not a weaker one. The core are still together, and have been for a while, and they know how to win football games."

He added: "They (Liverpool) are going through a fantastic spell of football, they seem to have a different rhythm, and it is a pleasure to see them play. They have no fear to leave spaces at the back. They press high, play a high line, have speed."

Antoine Griezmann leads the Atletico attack with former Liverpool forward Luis Suarez named on the bench. That is one of four changes Diego Simeone has made from Atleti's last match prior to the international break, which was a 2-0 victory over Barcelona. Felipe, Kieran Trippier and Geoffrey Kondogbia all get the nod.
