Jurgen Klopp confirms Luis Diaz boost for Leeds clash but reveals two key Liverpool players could be missing

Jurgen Klopp confirms Luis Diaz boost for Leeds clash but reveals two key Liverpool players could be missing

Mixed news for Liverpool fans.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has confirmed Luis Diaz is in contention to face Leeds United on Monday but revealed there are doubts over two key players ahead of the trip to Elland Road.

Diaz, 26, has missed the majority of the season after suffering a knee injury against Arsenal in October.

He had looked like returning after the winter break for the World Cup but suffered a setback in his recovery during a warm-weather training camp in Dubai.

The Colombia international has now returned to full training with Liverpool and Klopp has confirmed he could feature against Leeds on Monday.

"He is now 100 per cent ready in training," said Klopp.

"He is now completely ready in training and now we have to reintegrate him. He will be in the squad, if nothing else happens Luis will be in the squad."

When asked if it was like signing a new player, Klopp added: "Yes, absolutely it is. Luis has developed massively in that time, his English has improved in that time and he's really settled.

"He's been here every day, you know how it is with players when they are injured. They are more at the training ground than others with all the physio therapists and all of this. He's really matured.

"Much more comfortable than he was when he was in a new country. That is really good and will help him as well. We're really happy to have him back, he is a breathe of fresh air.

"He loves it, he can not train without a smile on his face which is really special."

Klopp reveals injury doubts for Leeds clash

It was not all good news for Liverpool supporters, however, with Klopp confirming Alisson and Ibrahima Konate both missed training this week and are doubts to face Leeds.

"We had a couple of problems this. Ibra couldn't train for two days but should be back today hopefully," added Klopp.

"Alisson wasn't involved for two days and will train today individually. A little bit of illness here, a few knocks there. We had a few problems, hopefully we won't have any more."

Liverpool are currently eighth in the Premier League table, 12 points off the top four with only nine games remaining in their league campaign.
