Jurgen Klopp finally has some fitness news to smile about, reporting 'good news' for a number of players ahead of Liverpool's crunch Premier League game against Arsenal on Wednesday night.
Injuries were beginning to mount up for the Reds, who were forced into playing a vastly under-strength side in the FA Cup against Exeter on Friday night in a match which saw them drag Tiago Ilori back from Aston Villa to fill in at centre-back alongside Jose Enrique - the left-back making his first appearance in nearly a year pulled completely out of position.
Neither should have to feature against the Gunners' dangerous attacking line, with Kolo Toure and Mamadou Sakho both set to be fit for Wednesday's game - as are Jordon Ibe and Jordan Henderson, according to quotes from Klopp on the club's official website.
He said: “The situation now is better than it was two or three days ago because I think Kolo will be available, so we will have a senior centre-back. Mama wants to be available, hopefully we can use him and then we’ll see.
"Martin is still a few weeks and Dejan feels good but the time of his injury was January 5 at Stoke, so it’s only been six days until now and eight until Arsenal and United will be 12. It’s close and there’ll be a moment when we have to decide if it’s risk, or if it’s a risk we could try. But it’s not the moment for this and we have to wait.
“That’s the situation, so we will probably have Kolo and Mama and the next one is Lucas [at centre-back]. “Jordon Ibe, Jordan Henderson and Mama, who I spoke about, is three [pieces of] good news. Millie [Milner] was, but we left him at home when we were in Exeter. He is still in training. They are all good news.”
