The Reds begin their Champions  League campaign this season with a game against Napoli, one of Italy's top-flight top teams.

No to mention, the Liverpool midfield has struggled due to a severe injury crisis this new season.

Arthur moved to Liverpool in a loan deal from Juventus— as Klopp was convinced he needed more options in the middle.

Speaking to the pres Tuesday Klopp said: “Arthur needs now just football and training, especially, that’s how it is,” said Klopp.

“He wasn’t in team training for a while at Juve, so he needs proper team training – and that’s what we are doing with him.

“Can he play minutes? Yes. Should he play a full game? No, because he needs to get used to the intensity in each competition.

“It’s not like in the Champions League you have to work less than in the Premier League. Not at all, especially not here.

“He is doing well, he is really giving his absolute all in training.

“We have to be careful with him as well and then we will see whether we can use him.”
