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."
