​Liverpool set to welcome back Fabinho, Alisson for Atletico Madrid trip

Liverpool have received a significant boost as they prepare to take on Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.

The Reds are set to do battle against the La Liga champions in the group stages of the competition.

And Jurgen Klopp can count on Brazilian duo Alisson Becker and Fabinho for the clash.

Both players were absent from the 5-0 win over Watford on Saturday in the Premier League, as they flew directly to Spain after international duty in South America.

One who will be absent for the game is Curtis Jones, as he is suffering from a minor injury.

"Unfortunately, Curtis was only with us in the warming up and will be here in Liverpool to hopefully make the final steps to full training," said Klopp during his pre-match press conference.

"Today he did only warming up and then did his stuff, but still individual training and we decided to leave him here to continue that. And then hopefully he is ready for United."
