Ahead of their round of 16 Champions League clash against Atletico Madrid, the Reds have confirmed their squad for the knockout stages of the competition and made one change to the selection that took part in the group stage.

New signing Takumi Minamino, who arrived from Red Bull Salzburg for £7.25 million (R138 million) last month, has replaced young Dutch defender Sepp van den Berg in Liverpool's squad for the next round of fixtures. 

Minamino had come up against Jurgen Klopp's side in the group stage of the competition, but UEFA's rule changes now allow a player to be registered for two clubs during a single European campaign. 

Each team is allowed to submit an A-List and a B-List for the next round, the latter of which, according to UEFA, allows for the inclusion of an unlimited number of players born on, or after, 1 January 1998 and has been eligible to play for the club concerned for any uninterrupted period of two years since his 15th birthday.
