Fabinho returns to the starting line-up for Liverpool’s Champions League meeting with Atletico Madrid at Anfield tonight.

The Brazil midfielder is back in the XI after injury ruled him out of the Reds’ last two Premier League fixtures.

He is one of five changes made by Jürgen Klopp, with the others seeing Kostas Tsimikas, Joel Matip, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Diogo Jota also come into the line-up.

Thiago Alcantara is on the bench, but Curtis Jones misses out after sustaining a knock to his eye in training on Tuesday and Joe Gomez is absent due to a calf injury.

Liverpool: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Tsimikas, Fabinho, Henderson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mane, Salah, Jota.

Subs: Adrian, Kelleher, Konate, Thiago, Firmino, Minamino, Robertson, Origi, Phillips, Williams, Morton.
