“Virgil looks fine, he looks not good because he has the cut there, but apart from that it should be fine,” Klopp said.

“All the boys who were not involved so far or got slight knocks in pre-season will not be available for tomorrow, but [are] getting closer, really closer, closer and closer so hopefully, the majority of them can start training completely normal after the Arsenal game, but this game is now a bit too early for them. Maybe one or two [will be] involved in the squad, we have to see.

The kick-off time for the match is 4:30 pm.
