Klopp's words

"Yes, Bobby trained as normal, he's ready," Klopp told a news conference. He then added: "Naby was ill for a week, last game on the bench, he is fully trained, he looks very good. All good."  

Klopp also reported no new injuries to his squad, although he is still without Joel Matip, Thiago Alcantara, Ibrahima Konate, Curtis Jones, Diogo Jota, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Calvin Ramsay and Caoimhin Kelleher. "Everyone else trained normally as well. No, nobody came back," the German coach commented.

Asked about Jones and Jota in particular, he reported, "It's getting closer and closer. Ask again after the match but there is no chance for this match," he said.
