Klopp has revealed in his pre-match press conference that his Liverpool squad will not be given that extra boost with players returning from injury.
Though, the Liverpool boss also said that Liverpool managed to escape their win over Wolves without any further injury woes.
Thiago, Luis Diaz and Joe Gomez are, however, still unavailable for selection through injury and will not feature in this weekend’s contest against a rampant Manchester United.
The boss expects us to have the same squad available for #LIVMUN on Sunday 🗣

“We had little knocks here and there,” Klopp stated.
“The last message I got, it’s early and I didn’t see them this morning, but yesterday evening they were all fine, apart from the players who are still out, Thiago and Luis Diaz.” he added.
Midfielder Thiago has failed to play since the start of February, as he continues to recover from a hip injury, and Colombian attacker Diaz is still unable to resume full training at the moment.
“Joey is obviously closer but not close enough.”
Gomez picked up a muscle problem in the second half of Liverpool’s loss to Real Madrid and hasn’t featured for the Reds since.
Before the Wolves game, Klopp insisted Diaz may return to light training the following week.
“It’s estimated he will be warming up next week, then maybe a week later team training” Klopp told reporters prior to the Wolves game.
