Liverpool must be the team nobody wants to play against again, German manager Jurgen Klopp said ahead of Saturday's game against Bournemouth. The Reds boss is likely to take the field at Anfield with the same starting 11 that faced Manchester United last Monday after no new injuries or suspensions.

Klopp confirmed that five players are close to a return to fitness, although this weekend's Premier League clash will be too soon for Thiago Alcantara, Curtis Jones, Diogo Jota, Caoimhin Kelleher and Joel Matip, when asked if he was likely to have anyone at his disposal.

"This weekend probably not, but then Joel, Curtis, Thiago is not far away, Diogo is getting closer and closer, Caoimhin will be in training, I think, early next week as well. So yes, positive news but I don't think anybody will be ready for tomorrow," the manager said in his pre-match press conference.

Facts

Klopp also said Naby Keita will be absent after a muscle problem ruled him out of the defeat to United. Ibrahima Konate, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Calvin Ramsay remain out, while Darwin Nunez will serve the second game of his three-match suspension.

Mohamed Salah will become Liverpool's second-highest Premier League goalscorer with 121 goals if he scores against Bournemouth and if the Reds score three goals, they will reach the 800-goal mark in all competitions during Klopp's tenure.
