GAMEWEEK 3 TEAM NEWS: INJURY UPDATES FROM FRIDAY
FRIDAY’S PRESS CONFERENCE TIMES
Trent Alexander-Arnold has been passed fit to feature against Newcastle United on Sunday.
The right-back picked up a knock in last weekend’s win over Bournemouth but has got the green light from Jurgen Klopp this morning.
Alexis Mac Allister is also free to play after his three-match ban for serious foul play was overturned on appeal.
Thiago Alcantara (match fitness) and Curtis Jones (ankle) miss out, however, while Ibrahima Konate (muscle) is a fresh concern.
“Trent, yes. Thiago, from Monday on. Curtis, from Monday on. Ibou is a doubt. Playing 40 minutes with 10 men [last weekend] didn’t help! That’s the situation. The rest should be available.” – Jurgen Klopp
That last line from Klopp suggests all is well with Luis Diaz, who needed treatment against the Cherries shortly before being replaced.
Wataru Endo got more minutes than expected off the bench in Gameweek 2 and Klopp hinted that he still not be in starting contention on Tyneside.
“After one and half days, half a session, playing in a team with 10 men, it’s really difficult and he did really exceptionally well with that.
“Now we have him here three sessions this week. He looks good, he is a good player. But I really think, if it would be that easy to bring someone in… and it would work out perfectly after three days, why do we train with all the others for so long? We could just do it always like that, bring them together and play the weekend.
“No, it was not expected [that Endo would get so much game-time], we had him on the bench to bring him but obviously later in a slightly different situation.” – Jurgen Klopp
Meanwhile, the Liverpool boss again poured cold water on stories linking Mohamed Salah with a move to Saudi Arabia.
“It’s difficult to talk about media stories because there is nothing to talk about from our point of view. We don’t have an offer, Mo Salah is a Liverpool player.
“There’s nothing there. If there would be something, the answer would be no.” – Jurgen Klopp on Mohamed Salah
Joelinton has been passed fit to face Liverpool, having recovered from the knock he picked up against Manchester City last Saturday.
New arrival Lewis Hall is in contention albeit lacking in match fitness, while Javier Manquillo returns to training today after a month on the sidelines with a groin injury.
Long-term absentees Joe Willock (hamstring) and Emil Krafth (knee) remain out.
