Jurgen Klopp revealed who could take part in the Merseyside derby with Everton – Football World – England

Jurgen Klopp spoke to the media after being quizzed about Liverpool’s injury woes ahead of their game against city rivals Everton on Saturday. The German announced that Diogo Jota will “probably” be part of the squad for the match, while Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Calvin Ramsey continue to nurse various injuries.

Merseysiders captain Jordan Henderson will miss the clash due to an injury picked up against Newcastle. Ibrahima Konate is expected to return in mid-September and Thiago Alcantara will resume training at the beginning of the new week. New signing Artur Melo is expected to miss the clash.

Liverpool’s Uruguayan Darwin Nunez has served his suspension following his red card against Crystal Palace and will be available for the clash. Jurgen Klopp also touched on the topic of the new signing Artur Melo.

“I am very happy with this transfer. He is coming into his prime football age. Can provide rhythm and is secure with the ball. This is really important. It is good in tight spaces. I really like this. The potential is still there, we play differently from Juve and that is encouraging,” said the German specialist.
