Diogo Jota returned to Liverpool training on Tuesday. The forward – who has been out since December with a knee injury – was included in the squad to face Sheffield United on Saturday but had to be sent home with illness before the game. Jota was joined by Fabinho, January signing Ben Davies and Alisson Becker, who was back at Kirkby following the death of his father last week.
Jurgen Klopp said: “Alisson and Fabinho, I am pretty sure [they can play]. With Diogo, he was with us last night in the hotel, but he got sick overnight and we had to send him home. So it will depend how quickly he recovers, obviously. He wasn’t in the squad, but he’s trained with the team before [this week] and looked really good, like I said before. I think he will be available but I don’t know. I would think that Diogo is ready for Thursday, but I don’t know at the moment.”
Jordan Henderson is out with a hamstring injury while Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip are long-term absentees.
