Roberto Firmino returned to pre-season training earlier this week
Liverpool boss is optimistic Roberto Firmino and Trent Alexander-Arnold will be available for Liverpool’s opening game of the season against West Ham.
Firmino and Alexander-Arnold returned to pre-season training this week after being allowed time away from the squad following their World Cup campaigns with Brazil and England.
Both are expected to play a part in Liverpool’s penultimate pre-season friendly against Napoli on Saturday, and Klopp feels the pair will be back up to full fitness in time to face the Hammers at Anfield on August 12.
When asked about the Brazilian availability, Klopp said: “It’s good to have him here, he looks in good shape, and if possible we will see [if he can play against Napoli].
Klopp said, “Step by step, they are all coming back and it’s the best news.”
