Jurgen Klopp on Roberto Firmino: “It’s not a serious injury, we’re still kind of convinced. But now it takes a little bit longer already than we all thought. He will not be ready for tomorrow, didn’t train yet.”
Jurgen Klopp: “We had a little problem with a little diarrhoea and stuff. Kostas [Tsimikas] was back yesterday, Curtis [Jones] couldn’t train yesterday still.”
David Moyes says that it’s too early to provide any fresh injury updates from last night’s game. Longer-term absentees Angelo Ogbonna and Issa Diop are making progress, with the former back running on the grass.
Mikel Arteta on Bukayo Saka: “Yeah, hopefully he will be fine. He had some issues in the final part of the [Man Utd] game but he has recovered well and we are expecting him to be fine.”
Arteta on whether Takehiro Tomiyasu is ready to start: “You only know that, when a player has been out for a long spell, when you put him on the pitch. He hasn’t started many matches yet & he is lacking time on the pitch. It’s a decision we will make tomorrow.”
Pep Guardiola confirms that Kyle Walker and John Stones are both out of the Leeds match.
On Stones: “For tomorrow he is out and we’ll see for Wednesday.”
Ralf Rangnick: “I hope Fred will make it for the Brentford game. As it seems, Jadon [Sancho] might be out for the rest of the season with his tonsillitis, so he will most likely be unavailable.”
Rangnick: “Cavani is supposed to come back to training [on Fri] but then again, the question is he has been missing for the last four or five weeks – is he really a player who could then play against Brentford? Probably not to start but at least from the bench.”
Rangnick: “Apart from that, we have to wait and see. Harry Maguire [also missed the game v Chelsea], Jesse was missing for personal, family reasons today. I hope that some of those players will be back on Monday.”
Thomas Tuchel: “Ben Chilwell, no. For Kova, it is too early. Callum Hudson-Odoi as well. Maybe Andreas Christensen, but let’s see after he was ill. And the same for Ross Barkley. Let’s wait until [Saturday] to see how they feel.”
