Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has received three postive injury updates as his side prepare to take on RB Leipzig in the Champions League last 16 on Tuesday in Budapest

The Reds have lost three consecutive Premier League fixtures following their win over West Ham in January, conceding seven across their last two outings.

Despite that, Klopp has insisted that he is up for the fight, and he will be looking for a fine first-leg showing against Julian Nagelsmann’s Red Bulls in Budapest.

Although the German has been hit with unprecedented injuries to his playing squad so far this season, he would have welcomed the return of three players to training, as well as the inclusion of youngsters Jake Cain and Leighton Clarkson.

However, there was no sign of Fabinho, suggesting that Ozan Kabak could start at the back alongside Jordan Henderson after a tricky debut against Leicester.

Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold are set to join them in defence in front of the out-of form Alisson, with Thiago, Georginio Wijnaldum and Curtis Jones in midfield.

The regular trio of Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah are set to continue up front with Klopp expecting a stern challenge from the Bundesliga hopefuls.

He said: “Julian is an extraordinary talent. He’s still young as a coach and he’s already proven virtually everything that you can prove as a manager. He’s talented and he seems young and fresh. The Reds are expected to flow in (4-3-3) formation.
