Jurgen Klopp gives Liverpool squad injury update ahead of Napoli showdown

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp gave an injury update today regarding all members of The Reds’ squad as his side prepare to face Napoli at Anfield on Wednesday night.

Speaking to Liverpoolfc.com, Klopp spoke about the current condition of players such as Joel Matip, Mohamed Salah and Naby Keita.

Klopp confirmed that Matip will miss Wednesday night’s game as he continues his rehabilitation. The former Cameroon international is expected to be back in action over the next couple of weeks.

Regarding Salah, Klopp said:

“Mo looks really good. He looked really good in training the day before yesterday especially, after the game. It was really good.

“Yesterday we didn’t do too much, so we will see today – but I’m not worried about it.”

Naby Keita hasn’t featured as much as he would have liked this season. His last appearance was when he started in Liverpool’s 2-1 win over KRC Genk in the last Champions League fixture, earlier this month.

Klopp mentioned that Keita had been ill since the weekend but seems to have overcome it now as he trained with the squad on Monday.

A win for Liverpool will ensure qualification for the last sixteen of this season’s competition as The Reds look to defend their European title.
