Klopp continues to juggle several injury problems and Xherdan Shaqiri is set to play in midfield.

The German spoke highly of the 29-year-old’s versatility in the lead up to their trip to Italy.

Atalanta made the last eight of this competition last term and are two points off the summit in Serie A this season.

They have four points from their opening two fixtures and Klopp is under no illusions of the challenge that lies ahead.

Atalanta put in an impressive showing last season

“They obviously have in the team a really good atmosphere in general, a good mood and they are a proper fighting unit. So I was not surprised last year.

“Of course, I didn’t know too much about Atalanta before the [last] season started but I knew about the role they played in Italy, which was the qualification for the Champions League.

“[They are] Difficult to play against, very special in their approach, slightly similar to Leeds, let me say like this, organisation-wise and these kind of things.

“So it will be a tough one.“

Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Gomez, Robertson; Shaqiri, Henderson, Milner; Jota, Minamino, Origi
