Everything Jurgen Klopp said about Brentford vs Liverpool including injury updates on Thiago and Naby Keita

Klopp has gone

That's all from the Liverpool boss.

Scroll down for a summary of what Jurgen Klopp had to say ahead of tomorrow's match.

Klopp on safe standing proposals

"I like the idea and I'm really excited about how much better the atmosphere could be at Anfield with that. I'd be really surprised if it could be even better, but we will see.

"I think it is a good moment to start thinking about how we can get back to where we were. Football is about atmosphere. The more people in the stadium and in the right position, the better the atmosphere is."

Klopp on Minamino

"He is an outstanding talent. Everything was difficult when he joined and you need to get used to the Premier League. It helped massively going to Southampton and he came back a different player and a different package. Players need time."

Klopp on Ivan Toney threat

"Brentford is a nice story. Ivan Toney, I have to say.

"They all work as a unit. He has the trust and faith and he shows what you can get out of a player. He was on the market, not sure who wanted him. Brentford did. It's not about the problems you have, it's solutions."

Klopp on impressive defensive record

"Ali has made brilliant saves in moments. As a unit we have defended pretty well so far. No-one wanted to hear it but we have three new players in Joel, Virg and Joe.

"Palace was a new last line and we needed a clear defending attitude. We have that."

Klopp makes Brentford/Mainz comparison

"It reminds me of the time I coached at Mainz. We had to work in the transfer market clever.

"Brentford have a chance against us. They are well-drilled and it's 3-5-2. Everyone is ready to make the extra yard with a new stadium."

Klopp on Academy stars coming through the ranks

"Three played v Norwich and I was impressed, so was everyone. 16-years-old in an adult game, you don't find 1000s of people who do that."

Klopp on Keita setback

"Nothing serious but it keeps him out of Brentford, for sure. A little longer maybe, we will see. It's painful and we have to see how he deals with it. Not cool. A good pre-season and played a lot of games but it happens."

Klopp on Thiago injury

"It's not 100% clear. It's a muscle in the calf. It's an issue, obviously. After the international break probably. I don't think it would be anything earlier."

10 minutes to go

We will be hearing from Jurgen Klopp in 10 minutes. Stay tuned to hear what the Liverpool boss has to say.

Frank on Liverpool test

Brentford boss Thomas Frank has heaped praise on Liverpool ahead of tomorrow's match, insisting that Jurgen Klopp's side can 'hit' teams from every angle.

The Bees have enjoyed an impressive start to the season, having been promoted from the Championship.

Frank has recognised this will his team's toughest test to date due to Liverpool's strength in various areas of the pitch.

"What is so impressive with Liverpool is that they are an attacking threat from so many areas," he said at his pre-match press conference.

"When you are facing some teams, maybe it is mostly crosses you face. But, against Liverpool, they are fantastic at crossing, fantastic at combining through the middle, fantastic at counter-attacking high and deep. Every angle they can hit you with."

Long time coming

Saturday's game against Brenford will be the first league meeting between the sides since May 1947.

This match ended as a 1-1 draw, leading to the Bees’ relegation from the top flight, while Liverpool went on to win the league title.

Welcome, Reds

Good morning, Reds.

We will be hearing from Jurgen Klopp from 10:45am onwards as the Liverpool boss looks ahead to tomorrow's match with Brenford.

The Bees earned a home win over Arsenal on the first day of the Premier League season and currently sit ninth in the table.

Striker Ivan Toney will be the main man Liverpool will look to keep quiet, meanwhile the Reds are also likely to come up against former player Sergi Canos.

Injury updates

Jurgen Klopp provided fitness updates on six players yesterday, including Trent Alexander-Arnold and Naby Keita.

The good news for Liverpool is that Alexander-Arnold is expected to return to the team, having missed last weekend's home clash with Crysral Palace due to illness.

James Milner and Neco Williams, meanwhile, have returned to first-team training.

Keita and Thiago Alcantara are expected to miss tomorrow's match, while Roberto Firmino is in 'contention'.

Discussing likely absentees for the Brenford game, Klopp told liverpoolfc.com: “Naby probably not. It’s not a serious thing but we have to wait until the pain settles, pretty much. We will see about that. Thiago, no chance.

“Bobby trained already for two or three days, so he is back in contention, let me say it like this. We used him a little bit as a ‘joker’ [in training].

“But he will be in the normal training and then we have to make a decision if we take him with us or not. Porto, 100 per cent. Brentford, we have to see."
