Klopp told his pre-match press conference: “No, Nat Phillips is not back. Curtis is back, yeah, that’s true. Diogo is fine.”
On whether he knows any more about a timescale for Jordan Henderson‘s return, the boss said: “Not really, I don’t know. Nobody told me, so it’s for sure not in the next couple of weeks.”
The visitors are set to be without Karl Darlow, Ryan Fraser and likely Fabian Schar.
Darlow and Fraser are currently sidelined having undergone operations on knee and groin issues respectively, while Schar has returned to training but is not expected to be ready to feature at Anfield.
“Fab Schar has worked extremely hard and trained all week. Maybe the weekend is a bit too early for him,” said Newcastle boss Steve Bruce at his pre-match press conference.
“But the good thing about Fab is that he’s desperate to play, as always, so it’s good to see him back.
“Karl Darlow, unfortunately, had a small operation on his knee so he’ll be out for a few weeks, and the same goes for Ryan Fraser, so that’s about it in terms of injuries.”
Former great Liverpool defender turned popular football pundit, Mark Lawrenson, has predicted a 2-0 victory for the Reds.
Newcastle find themselves 15th in the league table. They are undefeated in their last three games (including two wins) and are heading into this match on the back of a 3-2 win against West Ham United.
With six games left to play, Newcastle are mathematically not safe yet, but they are eight points above third-bottom Fulham, who could find it hard to catch them now
