FA Cup: Klopp Provides Liverpool Injury Update

Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp has provided his team’s injury news ahead of the FA Cup clash with Brighton on Sunday.

The Reds have struggled for consistency this season and also battled with injuries to key players in the course of the season.

Liverpool suffered an embarrassing 3-0 defeat to Brighton at the Amex Stadium in the Premier League two weeks ago.

Klopp will be hoping his team can get a revenge despite losing key players to injuries.

He provided updates on the likes of Luis Diaz, Roberto Firmino, Diogo Jota and Virgil Van Dijk.

Speaking at a press conference on Friday morning, the Reds boss said: “Closer, yes, of course closer.

“Luis takes longer but Diogo, Bobby and Virgil, a couple of weeks and [then they] can join training, and then we have to see how quick it goes from there.”

He also confirmed that Arthur Melo is not ready for action yet.

He said: “I would say pretty good, so he’s running a lot. Two or three weeks, I think, maybe until he can join team training.

“But it looks good for a while already. So it was now a long injury and he needs a proper build-up. He was not a part of team training or whatever.

“Fabio Carvalho is obviously out. He has a little thing. Did anybody tell me that he can train today? I don’t think so, but maybe he can train today but he will not be 100 per cent ready for the weekend.

Liverpool are the holders of the FA Cup after beating Chelsea in the final last season via penalty shootout.
