A knock prevented the Brazil forward from featuring in the Reds’ last three outings against Fulham, RB Leipzig and Wolverhampton Wanderers; however, he resumed full training during the international break.
“Bobby is back,” Jürgen Klopp confirmed during his pre-match press conference, but Divock Origi and Caoimhin Kelleher remain sidelined.
The champions will also be without the services of Jordan Henderson, who is continuing his rehabilitation from groin surgery, as well as long-term absentees Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip.
Klopp reported no other fresh injury concerns following the international recess.

Elsewhere, if James Milner is utilised from the bench, he will become the most-used substitute in Premier League history, coming on 159 times in the competition.
