Liverpool team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Atletico Madrid

Sports Mole rounds up Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Tuesday's Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid.

Liverpool will be looking to secure a positive result in the Spanish capital on Tuesday night as the Champions League holders head to Atletico Madrid for the first leg of their last-16 tie.

The Reds extended their lead at the top of the Premier League table to 25 points courtesy of a 1-0 win over Norwich City on Saturday.

Jurgen Klopp's side will now switch their focus to the European Cup as they face Atletico at the Wanda Metropolitano ahead of the reverse match at Anfield next month.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for Liverpool ahead of what looks set to be a fascinating clash with Diego Simeone's side.
