Jurgen Klopp gives an injury update on key players

Naby Keita and Curtis Jones are set to miss out this weekend.

Players like Alisson Becker, Ibrahima Konate and Diogo Jota have suffered injuries in the pre-season and are expected to be available for their Premier League opener against Fulham.

Liverpool won their first trophy of the new season by beating Manchester City 3-1 in the Community Shield.

But Naby Keita and Curtis Jones will not recover in time and Klopp doesn’t want to take any risks.

‘Naby is ill and Curtis felt a little bit and we couldn’t take any risks,’ Klopp explained to liverpoolfc.com. ‘All of a sudden the team was really young and we play [against] a really strong side.’

‘Naby is ill, so no [chance he will miss the Fulham match]. Curtis, we have to see. [There] was no impact or whatever, so that always makes it a bit, “My god, what could it be?” We had no time; he felt it and he wanted to play desperately, but then the medical department said no and that we needed to make further tests. We will do that [on Monday and then we will know more.’
