Liverpool v Atalanta team news

Liverpool: Salah is expected to be back in contention here after recovering from COVID-19 in a big boost for the Reds.

Naby Keita joined the sprawling injury list at the weekend, though Thiago and long-term absentee Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are on the verge of making comebacks.

Atalanta: Marten de Roon and Robin Gosens were absent for the 5-0 thrashing, but should return to the side here.

Fabio Depaoli picked up an injury at the weekend that could keep him out of contention, while his substitute replacement Cristiano Piccini also went on to pick up a knock.

Our prediction: Liverpool v Atalanta

Atalanta don't do boring games. Once again, the Italians have scored and conceded a shedload in the opening rounds of Serie A, building on a wild 2019/20 campaign during which they scored 98 and conceded 48 in just 38 matches.

Liverpool's squad, their defence in particular, has been pulled apart and reshuffled in all manner of ways lately, and will be targeted by this week's visitors.

The Reds should still get the job done against a good side, but they should expect to be met with greater resistance than in the reverse fixture.

Our prediction: Liverpool 3-2 Atalanta
