Liverpool duo set to return against Manchester United

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed Joel Matip and Fabinho are likely to feature when they host Manchester United on Sunday at Anfield. 

Fabinho has been on the sidelines since November 27th after the midfielder suffered an ankle injury during Liverpool's 1-1 draw with Napoli. Defender Matip has not played since Liverpool last met United on October 20 when he suffered a recurrence of the knee injury he first picked up in the win at Sheffield United.

"Joel and Fabinho trained completely normal yesterday and the day before so that means they are likely to be in the squad," he said. 

"The other three not (Lovren, Milner, Keita), but they are getting closer and closer – Dejan I think will train 100 percent from Monday on and the other two I don’t know exactly. I cannot rush it so when someone tells me they are ready I take them back in training."

The news comes as a major boost with a run of five games across two competitions within the space of 13 days starting from the United clash on Sunday.
