Jurgen Klopp has revealed that some of the Liverpool absentees might return in time to face Manchester United.

In one of the most anticipated Premier League games, Liverpool will go up against their arch-rivals Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have maintained a perfect record of being undefeated so far in the league and the only occasion on which they have dropped points was in when then were held at Old Trafford in the reverse tie.

Ahead of the tie, Reds manager Jurgen Klopp has hinted that absentees Fabinho, Dejan Lovren, and Joel Matip are nearing their return to the squad. Klopp said that Fabinho may take a while to get back to his feet. But Matip and Lovren might be included in the team against Man United.

“I wait really until they are on the pitch and somebody tells me they are allowed to do the full session,” Klopp said on the club website.

“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.”
