Liverpool look unstoppable. Jurgen Klopp’s team are reigning UEFA Champions League holders. They’re on track to smash Manchester City’s record 100-points tally in the Premier League and are on course to emulate Arsene Wenger’s “Invincibles” from the 2003-2004 campaign in going unbeaten all season long.
It’s difficult to detect a weakness in them. They’re a fearsome side with several ways to fillet opposition teams and the deadliest attacking trident in world football—Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.
Atletico Madrid—who they face in the UEFA Champions League at the Wanda Metropolitano on Tuesday—would be forgiven for running scared, but it’s not something a Diego Simeone team would ever entertain.
