Jurgen Klopp provides mixed fitness updates ahead of Brentford match

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has provided injury fitness updates of six first-team players ahead of the weekend's clash with Brentford. 

Trent Alexander-Arnold has resumed training and will be available for selection tomorrow. There is also positive news on Roberto Firmino as the Brazilian international resumed full training this week after overcoming a hamstring injury that’s kept him out since last month. Klopp says the striker is now ‘back in contention but it still remains to be seen whether he’ll be risked for Liverpool’s trip to Brentford this weekend or if he’ll be saved for the Porto game next week.

James Milner is expected to be available for the Premier League clash on Saturday evening after missing the Norwich game while Neco Williams had stepped up his recovery from an ankle injury this week at Melwood. 

"Trent was not injured, Trent was a little bit ill. He’s back in training, trained yesterday, and will be fine. Neco made [his] first steps the day before yesterday; yesterday a [recovery] day; will be in training today, if it’s 100 percent, we will see how he can cope with it."

"James was a similar thing to Trent, so he should be recovered. I saw him running around here, nobody told me differently – I assume he will be in training today."

"Bobby trained already for two or three days, so he is back in contention, let me say it like this. We used him a little bit as a ‘joker’ [in training]."

"But he will be in the normal training and then we have to make a decision if we take him with us or not. Porto, 100 percent. Brentford, we have to see."
