Simeone brings back Mario Hermoso and Herrera for Valencia
Good news for Diego Pablo Simeone. 'El Cholo' has regained his squad. It is a good day at Atlético Madrid.
Mario Hermoso is ready to play again. A sprain forced him to stop, but he is already recovered. If Simeone considers it appropriate, he will play.
The Argentinian couldn't be happier. The coach had found in Mario Hermoso his best asset and chose a scheme with three central defenders.
The absence of Mario Hermoso made Simeone change his plans against Eibar. Now, he could return to that previous plan.
Héctor Herrera is also back in the squad. He had been suffering from a muscle injury since 12 December, but the Mexican has also overcome it.
Koke, who was suspended against Eibar, could not be missing from Simeone's plans. Trippier, meanwhile, is still out due to the FA suspension.
This is the squad list for Valencia: Grbic, Oblak, San Román, Giménez, Renan Lodi, Savic, Felipe, Mario Hermoso, Vrsaljko, Kondogbia, Torreira, Koke, Saúl, Lemar, Llorente, Herrera, Vitolo, Carrasco, Joao Félix, Suárez, Correa, Dembélé.
