“Naby is fine,” said the boss. “Yesterday he was not here [at the AXA Training Centre] but he was in Liverpool again. I will have a chat with him today, but from what I know from all the calls and talks we had, he’s fine.”

This season is all about redemption for Keita and ever since he joined Liverpool for £52million, he has struggled with injuries but now, with an injury-free streak since February, this is his best chance to prove to Klopp and FSG that he should stay at the club long term.

4-3-3: Kelleher, Robertson, van Dik, Matip, Trent, Henderson, Keita, Thiago, Mane, Jota, Salah.
