Klopp confirms double injury boost but 7 key players set to miss Wolves clash


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has provided a full team news and injury update ahead of their Premier League clash with Wolves on Sunday.

The Liverpool boss has been dealing with a lengthy injury list this campaign and was without a number of key first team players for Tuesday 1-0 victory over Ajax in the Champions League.

It has been confirmed that Trent Alexander-Arnold and Naby Keita have returned to full training today and could be in contention to face Wolves on Sunday.

But, Liverpool are still going to be without some players for the game against Wolves as Klopp says none of his other absentees will be fit for the game which means Alisson Becker remains out with a thigh injury.

James Milner is also on the sidelines with a thigh injury while Thiago is still struggling to overcome a knee injury that he sustained against Everton and Shaqiri is also out with a muscle issue.

And, Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez won’t be returning to action soon as they continue their rehabilitation after surgery and Oxlade-Chamberlain isn’t ready to return yet.

Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com: “I don’t know yet, we will see. Trent and Naby will do the first steps in team training today; whatever we can do with that depends on how it looks.

“There are some niggles after the game against Ajax and we have to see how they respond. So far, they didn’t do a lot apart from treatment and stuff like this. We have to see how that develops [but] I don’t know in the moment.

“There is a chance Naby and Trent can be in the squad, I would say. If they they can play, I don’t know. If they are in the squad then they can play, but if they can start or play 90 minutes, I don’t know. I think there’s a chance they are in the squad, yes.

“Apart from Naby and Trent, nobody is coming back, no.” “Ox looks really promising, he is doing a lot of stuff. He is warming-up with the team now, some ball work, a lot of stuff, but we will develop that now over the next few days.

“Then we will see from which moment on it makes sense to throw him in. He is not too far away.”
