Good to hear about Curtis being close. He’s been excellent this season, and had become a certain starter before the injury. Hopefully he can shake off any rust and quickly pick up where he left off.

  • Thanks for everything Rafa. Nunca Caminarás Solo.
Konate was in some pics though.

Maybe individual training ?

Similar to Kostas and Macca maybe, didn't see them in the group training.

Curtis is training, doesn't know for the game. Darwin fine. Ibou was extra rest. Robbo day by day though not training today. The rest will be parts of training next week, step by step etc.

That was a nice update for once
To have Jota and TAA on the bench for Man Utd away would be a massive boost….if that was Jota coming off the bench on a 5v2 instead of Gakpo then it’s game set and match.

Jürgen Klopp has provided an update on the fitness of his squad ahead of Sunday’s clash with Brighton & Hove Albion, including initial news on Andy Robertson.
PUBLISHED 4 HOURS AGO
By Chris Shaw at the AXA Training Centre

Liverpool left-back Robertson was withdrawn during the first half of Scotland’s friendly against Northern Ireland on Tuesday night with an apparent ankle complaint.

Offering the latest at his pre-match press conference this afternoon, Klopp said: “Robbo, we take it a little bit day by day so we will see.

“He will not train today but it’s not as bad. So that’s fine.”

Elsewhere, Curtis Jones is returning to training, while Ibrahima Konate and Darwin Nunez are both fine ahead of the Premier League visit of the Seagulls.

“Curtis, I am not sure if he is available [for Sunday], but in training,” said the manager. “Ibou was an extra rest day [on Thursday], nothing else.

“[Nunez] is fine. He did his rehab during the week, trained the first day partially since we are back partially and since then he is in full training.”

Asked about the respective recoveries of Alisson Becker, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Diogo Jota, he added: “And the other boys, from next week on step by step I think they will join parts of team training and then team training, so we will see what we do with that.

“They are not too far away but not in yet, none of them was yet even close to team training. But they all make their steps and so it’s positive.”

Klopp was also asked about Stefan Bajcetic’s progress in his long-term fitness rehabilitation and if the No.43 has been able to use the time on the sidelines beneficially in other ways.

“Football brain-wise he is a natural so I don’t think he lost anything. But rhythm is something else,” he replied.

“He is now in partial training with the U21s and he will be in full training with the U21s next week because we pretty much don’t train because we play all the time. Then after that he will join our training. That’s the plan and then we will see.

“But the boy grew, put a few muscles on, looks good. Conor Bradley didn’t need long after he was out for a long, long time as well. He is a smart kid so I think he will be fine, but what do I know? I’ve never been that long injured in that age group.

“He watched definitely a lot of football. It is not that he played with us now regularly, he played early in the season. I forgot that actually, but he did, and then everything went the wrong way.

“But now he is nearly back and I’m really happy for him and happy for us.”

Jones likely to be back in the squad midweek and the other lads close are likely back the week after the United game. If we can navigate these next two fixtures with wins it sets us up brilliantly with the likes of Trent, Jota and Ali closing in on returns.

We’ve no reason to rush anyone back. Let’s make sure the injured players are 100% fit when back.

If we take any longer the season will be over before they return!


Let's hope the medical team gets it all spot on.   We need everyone fit and firing, even Thiago if possible, heading into the business end of the season.

I think Jota is the most important player to get back out of all of them for the run in and the one I’m eagerly looking for news of.
His clinical finishing in some tight nervy games is going to be so important.

I'd be worried about Thiago injuring someone when he gets injured.

Bajcetic reconfirmed as having trained this week with the U21s, then back to the senior squad next week too.
It looks to me as if we have signed another 'average' player. I'll hold back my complete opinion until I see the lad play

he took it with at least forty-odd minutes left in the game - looked like he was holding and trying to test moving his left thigh/hip from where i was standing.

so feels likely he can manage his way through a game if it was essential (although if you were to chose for him to miss games to recover and rest, the next two are much more preferable than the Europa games).

firstly cos it eases the risk of a two game ban for all his yellows, and also because both teams will be looking to stifle our midfield so having better and quicker passers and movers like Elliot would probably improve our scoring opportunities)

Nice to get some positive news Endo aside.

Didn't expect anything else but Klopp said Matip is unlikely to feature again this season. We've therefore probably seen the last of him in a red shirt :(

Tonight Kelleher will have played as many games as Alisson

Quansah will have played more full games than Konate and Matip

Mac played more games as a 6 than Thiago has played minutes.

Same reason why our youth players fit in to the team and play so well, same reason why people like Gini, Mane, and Coutinho leave and their form drops off a cliff. Also why I got wound up by the media as per their usual drivel comms during games lately, they bang on about how lucky we are to have such great youth players while completely ignoring the one common denominator for all of this. It's why most of us are going to be so fucking distraught when this season ends and he finally leaves.

I think if we are still top of the league when we get Jota back, we will be looking good. No disrespect to Gakpo, but the difference between having one of Diaz, Jota, or Nunez come off the bench would be massive if we need a goal or to put a game to bed.

Yeah I got that. I’m still surprised though. And I’m guessing it’s because of the number of cup games he’s played. He must be a decent amount back on Allison in terms of league games, right?
