Roberto Firmino starts for Liverpool in their Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid, but Fabinho only makes the bench.

Roberto Firmino has been named in the starting lineup for Liverpool's Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid, but Fabinho only makes the bench.

Firmino took advantage of Diogo Jota's benching at Watford with three of his side's five goals at Vicarage Road and has been rewarded with a place in the first XI at the Wanda Metropolitano.

However, Fabinho - who missed the 5-0 win over the Hornets due to his late return from international duty - is among the substitutes, as Jurgen Klopp names a largely unchanged XI.

Jota is once again benched as Firmino leads the line with support from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, while Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Naby Keita make up the midfield.

While Fabinho has not been reintroduced to the starting XI, Alisson Becker does make an expected return in between the sticks over Caoimhin Kelleher.

The rest of the Liverpool backline remains untouched, with Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robertson all reprising their roles.

Liverpool starting lineup: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Keita, Milner; Salah, Firmino, Mane
