Speaking to reporters at his pre-Spurs press conference, Klopp said: “Both are muscle injuries, different and for different people, so let’s see how quick it will be.

“We really don’t have to put a timeframe on it, because we don’t know it exactly.

“We will see, we are open whenever they want to join us again, when the medical department gives us the green light!

“But for sure not for this weekend, not for in the week, but then we will see.”

Klopp also provided a further injury update on the rest of his squad, suggesting could still be unavailable for the trip to Spurs, whilst and will return to full training next week.

“He was outside on the pitch, which looked really good, but then he had to do his own stuff again. Yesterday he was part of the first part of training.

“Shaq trained completely normal since he’s in. Dejan and we expect to be back next week in full training.

“That’s obviously good. If that’s then early enough for the United game, I don’t know but we will see. They work really hard in the moment and they go really through the paces, so that’s good.”
