Jürgen Klopp offers update on Liverpool’s three injured stars


Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp has announced that Naby Keïta has now returned to full training.

However, Alisson Becker and Divock Origi are not yet fit enough to return to action.

Keïta has been out with a hip injury sustained before the Uefa Super Cup clash with Chelsea last month.

Alisson, meanwhile, has been out with a calf injury he picked up in the first half of the first Premier League match of the season, whereas Origi is suffering from an ankle knock.

“Naby Keïta is back in training at least, with the team. Today for the first time with the team,” Klopp told reporters ahead of Sunday’s trip to Stamford Bridge.

“Ali is making big progress, but is still away. He had a proper session yesterday with John Achterberg, but is not in team training yet.

“Div, we have to see day by day, that’s how it was from the first day – how can he deal with the pain and stuff like that. We will see. It is pretty early, so I don’t know exactly what the medical department will tell me [today] about that case.

“I think it’s unlikely [he will be fit for Chelsea] but why should I rule him out? But it’s unlikely.”
