Sergio Henao battled to 11th place after Team Sky put in an active performance at Fleche Wallonne.
Movistar worked tirelessly to keep the race together, but on the final climb it was Julian Alaphilippe (Quick-Step Floors) who pushed clear to take the win.
"Sergio went down at the bottom of the Mur de Huy ahead of the penultimate climb. He didn't hurt himself but he came to a complete stop, so he had to expend some energy to get back which wasn't ideal and his brake was rubbing slightly afterwards because someone hit his bike.
"Everyone is certainly ready for Liege and I think the guys are in good shape. Liege is a bit of a different race and it's longer which suits our team more."
