Midfielder Thomas Partey has been named in Diego Simeone’s untouchables at Atletico Madrid.

The 26-year-old is on the list with Saul Niguez and Koke.

The trio were essential before the break and that will not change when competitive fixtures return in Spain next week.

Partey will continue to be a first choice in midfield when they travel to San Mames for their first game after the lockdown.

He made 24 appearances and scored two goals before the suspension of the league.

Simeone tried an XI on Monday in training with Partey in the thick of affairs.

Atleti’s line up had these men: Jan Oblak; Kieran Trippier, Stefan Savic, Jose Gimenez, Renan Lodi; Marcos Llorente, Thomas, Koke, Saul; Thomas Lemar, Diego Costa.
