Klopp hopeful of Jota and Firmino fitness for League Cup final

Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino are in a race against time to be fit for next Sunday’s League Cup final against Chelsea at Wembley.

The duo picked up ankle and muscle injuries respectively during last week’s Champions League clash at Inter Milan and missed Saturday’s 2-0 win over Norwich City.

But Jurgen Klopp is hopeful that the pair will be available for selection this weekend.

“It’s too early,” he told the official site during Monday’s training session. “I don’t even know if it will be a late decision or not.

“I saw them both today, they both look great – but those two always look great.

“We have to see how the specific issues develop but we obviously will try everything.”
