Roberto Firmino injury news

Roberto Firmino

Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp will make a late decision as to whether or not Roberto Firmino can be involved against Everton at the weekend.

The Reds’ forward missed the 5-0 thumping of Watford in midweek due to the ankle injury he sustained against the enemy at Old Trafford last weekend and Everton will be hoping he has to sit this one out too.

Initially there were fears that the Brazilian could be ruled out for several weeks but a scan showed that the injury wasn’t serious. Now it’s just a case of monitoring him ahead of the match at Goodison on Sunday.

Speaking at today’s pre-match press conference, Klopp said: “He was out there in the running yesterday but we have to see how he reacts. I will see him in a few minutes for the first time since yesterday.

“He is very positive, that’s Bobby’s nature. We have to see. I don’t see any other player – OK, we have maybe two or three more of them – being even in contention for that game after the little problem he had.

“It looks really good but if he will be ready for Sunday, I don’t know in this second.”
