Liverpool team news: Klopp has both Keita and Lovren available

Liverpool will be preparing for their match against Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday as they look to keep their place at the top of the Champions League group.

The Reds beat the Serbian outfit at Anfield last time out and will be looking to replicate the result as they look to take some control in a group that includes Paris Saint-Germain and Napoli.

And, it appears that Jurgen Klopp has been provided with a huge timely boost ahead of the trip to the European nation.


According to the club’s official website, both Naby Keita and Dejan Lovren are available for the game and have travelled with the squad.

Keita has missed the last four games with a hamstring injury that he picked up whilst on international duty, but he made a return to full training on Sunday.

Lovren was considered a doubt after he was left out of the squad for the game against Arsenal at the weekend, however, he also made the journey to Belgrade.

The Reds will be without Nathaniel Clyne, Jordan Henderson and Xherdan Shaqiri, who was left out due to political concerns.

The Verdict:

Keita and Lovren’s returns will have given Klopp and Liverpool a timely boost ahead of their Champions League clash with Red Star Belgrade.

The Reds will feel confident that they can get a result against the group’s bottom side, however, they will need to be wary that they did hold Napoli to a draw at home and have been on a three-game winning streak recently.

However, it is expected that the Anfield outfit will have too much for them and will want to replicate their 4-0 win as they look to try and pull away from the chasing pack in the group.
