Uttered with some optimism we can hang on to, all eyes will now be on Firmino training without issue later in the week, with Klopp not out to repeat the events of the days just gone by.
“We had a really difficult week, so many little things. An injury here and injury there,” he said.
Matip is now facing two weeks out with a groin problem, joining Thiago, Ibrahima Konate, Jota, Curtis Jones, Caoimhin Kelleher, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Calvin Ramsay and Kaide Gordon in the treatment room.
