Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker is set to resume to full training on Sunday.
Becker has been on the sidelines for seven weeks following a calf injury and will miss Saturday's Premier League match against Sheffield United. Addressing the media on Friday's pre-match conference, Jurgen Klopp revealed that the Best FIFA Men’s Goalkeeper for 2019 may be ready to take part in team training following the game at Bramall Lane.
“He is getting closer and closer [to returning to action]. Ali looks like he is close but the final work is with the medical department," he said.
"I'm not a doctor. I take the information they give me. In the last two weeks, he has progressed really, really well. Credit to the medical department they did a good job with him.
“He is not in contention for tomorrow. He can train with the team may be from Sunday onwards but we don’t know 100 percent. He is really close.”
The head coach also confirmed that strikers Sadio Mane and Divock Origi will be fit to play some part, but midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri is not fit enough to come into contention.
