Klopp re­veals trio set for come­back in United clash

Manchester Evening News - - UNITED - By DO­MINIC BOOTH

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.
