Jurgen Klopp has confirmed a double boost ahead of Liverpool’s Champions League trip to Atalanta. However, Thiago Alcantara looks set to miss the game tomorrow night.
Klopp held his pre-match press conference today. Liverpool boss confirmed that Naby Keita and Joel Matip could be back in contention to face Atalanta on Tuesday after returning to full training.
When asked for an injury update today, Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com:
“A lot, [but] I’m not sure about a new one. We have to see. Yesterday was recovery for some and normal training for the others, so now we have to see how the boys feel today. It’s pretty early now and I have not all the information, but I hope nothing serious.”
“Naby and Joel trained yesterday with the team, full, Thiago didn’t. So, that’s the situation. I have really no idea what I do with this information in the moment because yes, they trained, that’s good, it’s better than if they don’t train. But we have to see what we do with it. We have another day to make these decisions. A lot of players will be on the plane hopefully, and so decisions will be made late, late, late.”
