Liverpool will endeavor to continue their perfect start to the 2021-22 UEFA Champions League when they travel to Atletico Madrid for Tuesday's Group B encounter.
Jurgen Klopp's side produced a five-star performance to thrash Porto 5-1 on matchday two, while Atletico claimed a last-gasp win over AC Milan.
Jurgen Klopp was keen to stress that Liverpool's previous goal-laden performances at Porto would mean nothing ahead of their most recent trip to the Estadio do Dragao, but the Reds paid no attention to their manager's admission as they put five past Sergio Conceicao's men last time out.
The old guard of Mohammed Salah (2), Roberto Firminho (2), and Sadio Mane all made the net ripple as Liverpool went two for two in the 2021-22 Champions League to storm to the top of the rankings in Group B, with only Bayern Munich also chalking up a tournament-high eight goals from two group stage games.
Salah was unsurprisingly up to his old tricks once more as Liverpool thrashed Watford 5-0 during their most recent Premier League encounter - netting almost a replica of his wonder strike against Manchester City - while Firmino hit a hat-trick and Mane scored his 100th English top-flight goal.
Liverpool duo Alisson Becker and Fabinho flew straight to Madrid following their late returns from international duty and are primed to replace Kelleher and James Milner in the first XI here.
Diogo Jota and Trent Alexander-Arnold were also both passed fit for the win at Vicarage Road, but Thiago Alcantara and Harvey Elliott remain out, while Curtis Jones is a major doubt.
Liverpool possible starting lineup: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Keita; Salah, Firmino, Mane
