Klopp reveals trio set for comeback in United clash
JURGEN Klopp has revealed Liverpool could welcome back three injured stars for this weekend’s big clash with United.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer takes his side to Anfield on Sunday as the only team to have taken points off the runaway league leaders this season.
United will still be major underdogs, however, and Liverpool could be boosted by potential returns for key trio Joel Matip, Fabinho and Dejan Lovren.
Klopp revealed all three will be back in training this week ready to potentially play a part.
“I wait really until they are on the pitch and somebody tells me they are allowed to do the full session,” Klopp said. “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.”
Despite Liverpool’s form this season, Klopp has a poor record against United. The German manager has only won twice in 10 meetings with the Merseysiders’ arch rivals since he was appointed in October 2015.
The clash between the sides earlier in the season finished 1-1 - the only Premier League game this season that Liverpool have failed to win.
