In his pre-match press conference on Friday morning, Klopp revealed that Nunez left Anfield in a protective boot in midweek and he didn’t know “if Darwin is available or not.”
That led to concerns over the No. 9 missing the trip to the Emirates, with Cody Gakpo already slated to start up front if he missed out.
But fears were eased later in the day as footage of Nunez arriving for training emerged on social media – and now it can be confirmed that he took part in Friday’s session.
With Klopp’s injury situation easing – leaving only Joel Matip, Mohamed Salah, Stefan Bajcetic and Ben Doak out at present, along with Wataru Endo at the Asian Cup – there were fewer academy players involved.
Crucially, there seem to be no other new injuries in the squad, leaving Klopp with a strong contingent to travel to north London.
