The Dutch international had been stricken with illness after Liverpool’s warm-weather training camp in Dubai last week and was considered a doubt for Wednesday’s meeting with Claude Puel’s side.
Van Dijk had been reported to have been on the sidelines during training for the last four days, although Klopp later revealed that he had in fact trained last on Monday evening.
“Virgil was a little bit ill, but he trained yesterday so we will see,” he told reporters at his pre-match press conference.
“Dejan fine, Gini trained, Fabinho will train today.”
“Trent is getting closer and closer, it looks all very positive, but will not be ready for tomorrow. [Gomez] no.”
With Alexander-Arnold and Gomez both injured and James Milner suspended, the boss is likely to turn to Fabinho in the right-back slot.
The Brazilian should join the returning Dejan Lovren, van Dijk and Andy Robertson in the Liverpool back-line.
The Reds will be hoping to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League to seven points with a win, following Manchester City’s shock defeat to Newcastle on Tuesday.
