Cape Town - Jurgen Klopp has provided injury updates on Xherdan Shaqiri, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joel Matip ahead of Sunday's clash with Tottenham at Anfield.
The Swiss international has been out of action since last month with a calf injury but is edging closer to a return.
Klopp told reporters on Friday that Shaqiri will take longer to recover than normal because of his “big muscles”.
Klopp added: “I saw Shaq today, he is OK but he is not ready yet.”
Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joel Matip were left out of Liverpool‘s squad for the 4-1 victory over Genk on Wednesday night.
Matip was struggling after picking up a knock to one of his knees, while Alexander-Arnold was battling a virus.
And Klopp told reporters on Friday: “We just rested [Matip]. He is fine and Trent is fine, we have to see. I haven’t seen him yet. There is no setback, but he was ill enough to not travel.
“That was not a good sign. He should be fine but I don’t know 100 percent.”
