Klopp Provides Injury Update On Fabinho, Matip Ahead Of Man Utd Clash

Jurgen Klopp is hopeful Fabinho, Joel Matip and Dejan Lovren will all be used in training this week to help Liverpool prepare for Manchester United.

The Reds host Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men on Sunday, January 19, giving them a full week to recover after their 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

Matip was brought back into the fold last week having not featured for more than two months, Fabinho has been absent for the Reds since pulling out of the 1-1 draw with Napoli on November 27 with an ankle problem but is expected to return to training imminently while Lovren could also come back into the setup after not being seen since December.

And Klopp is hopeful he will be able to use all three players as he helps Liverpool get ready to face one of their oldest rivals and the only team to take points off them in the Premier League this season.

“I wait really until they are on the pitch and somebody tells me they are allowed to do the full session,” the manager told the club’s official website.

“It looks like Joel will be in, it looks like Fabinho will be in maybe a day later, I’m not sure. Dejan, maybe he can be in as well. 

“That means a lot and helps massively of course. But we will see how it looks. The week is very important.

“The game on Sunday against United, we all know what people expect from us from that game. It will be a big one as well and we try to be ready for that.”
