Jurgen Klopp gives a squad update ahead of Arsenal clash

Takumi Minamino will play a crucial role in the month of January.

The Japanese forward will be important for the Reds in the coming games as Klopp is without Salah and Mane due to their participation in AFCON.

Jurgen Klopp needs Minamino to step up alongside Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota for their upcoming fixtures.

The manager gives an update on the 26-year old who’s been sidelined for a few weeks.

Klopp told reporters: “Taki was injured. Nothing serious but serious enough that he couldn’t play.

“It’s not the longest rehab in his life hopefully – or maybe it was the longest rehab hopefully.

“But he is back and very important for us, very, very important – especially when we have a lot of games coming up and we know that two of our main guys up front are not here.

“It’s good. I liked Taki a lot when he came on (as a substitute). He’s actually in a really good shape but, of course, the injury interrupted it slightly.

“But now he’s back, it’s good and we need him desperately.”
