Jürgen Klopp has offered an update on Naby Keita, Joel Matip and Diogo Jota as part of his press conference ahead of their match against Aston Villa.
The trio are set to miss Friday evening’s FA Cup third-round tie at Villa Park as they continue their rehabilitation programmes from respective injuries.
Keita hasn’t figured since starting the 7-0 win at Crystal Palace on December 19 due to a fitness issue.
￼Klopp said the midfielder will returnto the squad in the upcoming days but would be too early to feature in their game against Aston Villa.
Meanwhile, Matip will be assessed in the coming week to determine whether he will be fit to face Manchester United on January 17.
The centre-back sustained an adductor injury during the draw with West Bromwich Albion last month.
Klopp said: “Yes, we will try working on that obviously. Until the United game we still have nine days around about, so we try.
