Jürgen Klopp provides update on LFC squad fitness and Joel Matip

Jürgen Klopp confirmed Liverpool have no new injury concerns ahead of Wednesday’s Merseyside derby at Anfield.

The Reds came through last weekend’s hard-fought victory over Brighton and Hove Albion unscathed on the fitness front.

Joel Matip remains unavailable, meanwhile, as the defender continues to recover from a knee issue.

“Joel needs a bit more time, it’s healing but it’s not exactly how we wished for,” explained Klopp at his pre-match press conference on Tuesday.

“It needs a bit more time, so that will take a while.

“The rest are fit. The long-term injuries not in, but all the others are fit and available.”
