Picking the Best Potential Atletico Madrid Lineup to Face Celta Vigo on Sunday

​Atletico Madrid return to domestic action this weekend as they host Celta Vigo at the Wanda Metropolitano on Sunday. 

Diego Simeone's side come off the back of an impressive 3-0 win against Lokomotiv Moscow in the Europa League on Thursday, and now turn their attention to catching ​Barcelona at the top of ​La Liga.

​Atletico could be 11 points behind the Catalan side before they kick-off on Sunday, meaning only a win will be good enough to stay in the title race.

Here's who the manager could pick for Sunday.
