Curtis Jones and Andy Robertson are fit and available for Liverpool when they host Sheffield United on Thursday, but the trio of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Alisson Becker and Diogo Jota are all still recovering from injury.

Jones has been sidelined since suffering an ankle problem against Brentford on 17 February, but has been training and is available to be in the squad this week.

The midfielder has been impressive this season, making 17 Premier League appearances, so will be a welcome return for Klopp as the Reds continue their challenge for the title.

However, Jota, Alexander-Arnold and Alisson are all still out, with the German saying the trio are hoping to return to team training next week.

The Portuguese forward and the English full-back are dealing with knee injuries, while the Brazilian goalkeeper is recovering from a hamstring problem.

‘Curtis is in training, is in contention. Yes, that is it pretty much,’ Klopp told a press conference on Wednesday.

‘The boys are doing well, Diogo and Trent are together in a group but it just looks like next week hopefully in parts of team training. No Ali, he looks good but in his mind as well, next week he will be part of team training.’

Asked if Robertson is available against the Blades on Thursday evening, Klopp confirmed that the Scotland star is in contention.

Dealing with Liverpool’s long injury list, Klopp also confirmed that Stefan Bajcetic is close to a return and Joel Matip is running again, but is still not expected to play again this season.

‘Stefan Bajcetic has trained fully with U21s this week and then he trains with the seniors next week,’ he said.

‘He is running. Since he got injured, this is the best moment as it was very painful but he got through that but it all takes time. Season isn’t long enough.’
