Jurgen Klopp confirms double Liverpool injury boost ahead of Inter's visit


Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has issued a positive fitness updates as Reds prepare to welcome Inter Milan

Klopp is confident of welcoming back Thiago Alcantara and Joel Matip for Tuesday's Champions League clash with Inter Milan.

Thiago has missed the Reds' last three games after injuring his hamstring during the warm-up at the Carabao Cup final against Chelsea last weekend.

Matip was absent from Saturday’s Premier League win over West Ham United through illness.

And Klopp has issued an update on the duo as the Reds prepare for the return clash against Serie A side Inter at Anfield on Tuesday.

"They all trained yesterday – full training," said the Liverpool boss. "I'm not sure yet what we make of that exactly to be honest as we have to see how they react today.

"Thiago was only a week out, so probably would be fine but I have to wait for it.

"Joel was only three or four days so he is fine, I would say."

Klopp, admits he won’t take any risks over Roberto Firmino's fitness with the Brazilian having been hampered by a number of muscle problems this season.

Firmino has been sidelined since suffering a muscle problem having scored in the 2-0 win at Inter three weeks ago.

"Bobby was longer out, (Sunday) was the first session so we have to see," said Klopp. "It makes probably sense to give him just a few more days with proper training.

"Today we don’t train properly it’s a minus-1 session, it’s tactical stuff, not high intensity and Bobby might need something else. But they are all in training."
