Liverpool: Roberto Firmino in contention to return from injury

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp revealed that forward Roberto Firmino was in line to return after a lengthy absence due to injury. Firmino suffered a tear in his hamstring during their win over Atletico Madrid in the Champions League. He has missed the last eight matches for the Reds. There was further positive news as Curtis Jones is close to a return after suffering an eye injury. Liverpool is set to play five matches over the next 13 days.

“Bobby trained completely normally yesterday so I would say he is in contention,” Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said about Roberto Firmino. “Curtis had his first session, a partial session with the team so he is not far off. But, timing-wise, it couldn’t be better, to be honest. It’s a busy period we need a full squad and getting two players back of this caliber is obviously good news.”

“Yesterday we were all negative and we hope that is the case for today,” he added. “The whole vaccination thing is a massive question of loyalty, solidarity, and togetherness. We have a chance to help not only ourselves but for other people as well. It is important to support the measures. The vaccination status of the team is quite good. Hopefully, we can do it with the whole team. I (arrive) earlier on the training ground than most of the players and am being tested before the players arrive. When it’s negative, we are allowed to enter. We are like the whole world, concerned about it and we do what we can.”
