Liverpool are set to face their next Champions League rivals Atalanta on Tuesday night.

Reds will be without injured defensive pair Virgil van Dijk and Fabinho, while a late decision is yet to be made on Joel Matip’s involvement.

However, despite the injury problems, pundit Michael Owen believes Jurgen Klopp’s side will secure a 2-1 win over the Serie A side.

“Atalanta have been a joy to watch so far this season!” he said.

“They are a dangerous outfit, and with Liverpool’s frailties at the back just now, the Italians will fancy themselves to cause some problems.

“Despite conceding goals, Liverpool are finding a way to win at the moment. That’s the mark of champions, and I think whilst Atalanta will be a huge test, I fancy the Reds to come out on top.”
