Jamie Carragher has told Jurgen Klopp how Liverpool should play against Atletico Madrid.

The Reds look to overturn the 1-0 deficit from the first leg of their Champions League last 16 ties.

Carragher has set out a plan for Jurgen Klopp’s side to follow and take them into the last eight.

“You’ve got to move the ball fast in a game like this,” Carragher told The Athletic. “When you get the opportunity to really attack Atletico you’ve got to go for it and that means taking risks.

“You might lose the ball more than normal in trying to force it but it’s about reacting to situations and not allowing them to get organised with 11 men behind the ball.

“Atletico won’t commit many players forward but on the rare occasions they do have two or three caught upfield, you need to turn defence into attack quickly. As soon as the goalkeeper catches it, he needs to be looking to get Liverpool flying at them.”
