Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino could be available for selection against Everton over the weekend, says Jurgen Klopp.
Firmino missed Liverpool’s 4-0 win over Manchester United on Tuesday evening due to a foot injury he picked up against Manchester City in the FA Cup semi. Klopp remains hopeful the Brazilian will be fit for the Merseyside derby clash.
“Bobby was not involved because, in the last situation in the City game, he felt something in his foot,” Klopp told Sky Sports.
“It’s not really bad. We hope so [he’ll be fit for Everton]. The scan, we were a bit worried but the scan was fine. Still very painful so that’s why he had no chance for today.”
“That’s what we need. We need a full squad. That’s how it is. If we can use that then we can maybe cope with the intensity. If not then we won’t have a chance.”
Thiago Alcantara was withdrawn 10 minutes to full-time with fears he had picked up a hamstring injury however Klopp confirmed the midfielder is just fine.
Thiago was withdrawn for Naby Keita 10 minutes before full-time with some fears he’d picked up a hamstring injury.
“He ripped his shorts! I thought he had done something else. He told me he was fine. All together now – phew.”
