Fabinho’s injury was a huge blow for Liverpool, but they have coped well without him to continue their record-breaking start to the season

Center-back Matip has beenout for two monthswith a knee issue while Lovren has not played since December due to a thigh injury.

“I wait really until they are on the pitch and somebody tells me they are allowed to do the full session,” Klopp said on the club website.

“It looks like Joel will be in, it looks like Fabinho will be in maybe a day later, I’m not sure. Dejan, maybe he can be in as well.

“That means a lot and helps massively of course. But we will see how it looks. The week is very important.

“The game on Sunday against United, we all know what people expect from us from that game. It will be a big one as well and we try to be ready for that. ”

“This time it was not intensity, this time it was the rhythm break,” added the German.

“I know people will say sometimes it’s that and sometimes it’s that, but it is like this.

“We were now used to [a game] three days, three days, four days, three days and now some of us had nine days. Training, yes, but not the intensity – we cannot do that and don’t want to do that.

“So now we are in again and let’s carry on.”
