The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern aren’t sure what the beverage of choice will be tomorrow afternoon…
Depending on the result of their clash against Man Utd, it might be time to turn to the champagne or, indeed, something much stronger if the result goes the other way.
It’s certainly going to be tough for Jugen Klopp and his players, but fortunately, the German has provided some fantastic news ahead of the game
According to James Pearce of the Liverpool Echo, Klopp has revealed that both Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino should be available to the Reds, despite their late arrival following the international break.
Klopp: "The club did everything to bring the boys (Coutinho & Firmino) back. We worked with the other clubs. They should be ok."

Returning on Thursday from a rather tiresome international break, the duo were considered doubts given the long distance travelled, but it appears as though preparations were made in an effort to get them back in as good a condition as possible.
It’s no real surprise that the effort was made, of course, with each player crucial for Jurgen Klopp. Coutinho has really impressed since returning to the first team fold, whilst Firmino has also looked good and is likely to come in for Daniel Sturridge – who looked poor in Liverpool’s last outing.
They might not be at 100%, but Jurgen Klopp needs all the strength that he can get against Man Utd.
Man Utd’s first team is firing on all cylinders, and so Klopp is going to need all of his strength – and a little bit of luck – to have any chance of winning.
It has been a tough few weeks for the Reds, but with the top quality of players like Coutinho and Firmino, anything is possible.
