“After the international break” was Klopp’s realistic target for the No. 6 but the first of seven games in 22 days will be too soon as
Diogo Jota could join him on the injury list after returning early from international duty with Portugal after failing to train or play due to a muscle issue.
But Roberto Firmino will be ready to step into the XI after three appearances off the bench following his own return from a fitness issue back in September.
The Reds will be bolstered by the return of 11 senior faces in the next day as the international break comes to a close.
