Jurgen Klopp has provided an injury update on Liverpool’s Darwin Nunez, Thiago Alcantara, Joel Matip and Ibrahima Konate.
Thiago and Nunez missed that game and Klopp confirmed that the former is still injured – as is Matip – but Konate is ‘ready to play minutes’ and there was good news about the Uruguayan striker.
Matip and Konate have been absent from Liverpool’s last three matches – 1-0 victories over Manchester City and West Ham as well as the 1-0 defeat at Forest.
‘Thiago is still out,’ Klopp told a press conference on Tuesday. ‘Konate is here and ready to play minutes, I would say.
‘[He] could play the first minutes but it wouldn’t make too much sense. Nothing new [on] yet. Matip, no.
‘Darwin is good. He trained. Normally yesterday and today. In this moment he is available.
‘Thiago was not close. Is he a doubt for tomorrow? I hope not but who knows.’
