Injury update as Liverpool prepare for New Years Day clash with Newcastle

Jurgen Klopp provides a fitness update on Andy Robertson, Alexis Mac Allister and also Thiago ahead of Monday’s Premier League game at Anfield.

“I think Thiago will be at one point in team training in January,” he said during Friday’s pre-match press conference. “With Stefan, if you ask Stefan how he feels, he says ‘good’. ‘Could you train?’ Yes, he could. It’s just we have to be sensible. That’s how it is.

“Thiago is in a very good moment as well but we just have to make sure we don’t use him then too early. The hip thing in and around that area is just a long-term thing as well.

“There were for sure days where he could have easily trained but it’s all about how can he be back then in the long term, and that’s what we are working on.”
