Liverpool are aiming to maintain their perfect start in the Champions League when they travel to Atletico Madrid in Group B.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are in a terrific vein of form, having thrashed Porto last time out in Europe, while Mohamed Salah starred once again in a 5-0 victory over Watford at the weekend.

Those results have left Liverpool in pole position in a tricky Group B, two points clear of Atletico, who snatched a late victory against AC Milan last time out.
