Klopp provides Liverpool fitness update after international break

Liverpool were hit with a number of injury concerns after the recent round fixtures with Roberto Firmino, Takumi Minamino and Virgil van Dijk all picking up injuries or injury scares.

Klopp has now provided an update on the trio, telling liverpoolfc.com: “Taki is already here for a while, he got injured obviously with Japan.

“With Virgil, that was obviously a scary moment, you can imagine. I sent him a message after the game, ‘Are you alright?’ ‘Yes.’ ‘100 per cent?’ ‘200 per cent.’ ‘Come on, send me a video of you without limping...’ ‘I’m only limping off.’

“So he called me from the bus and said, ‘Boss, I’m fine!’ I said, ‘Why are you limping then?’ He said, ‘My wife asked the same!’ So, yeah, that was a bit of a tricky moment but apart from that, no, all fine [for the other international players].

“Bobby is not [fit], it happened in the game [against Chelsea] obviously. Harvey is fine again.”

It seems that neither Minamino or Firmino will be available for next week's fixtures, which could lead to some creative team selections from the German.
