Keita was absent for the 3-0 loss due to illness. However, Klopp is confident the midfielder will be available for the Reds’ Premier League curtain-raiser away at Fulham in five days’ time.

Meanwhile, Jones - who was desperate to play - will today undergo tests today.

Speaking to LFC TV, Klopp said: “Naby is ill, so no (he’s not doubtful for Fulham). Curtis, we have to see. [There] was no impact or whatever, so that always makes it a bit: ‘My god, what could it be?’

“We had no time - he felt it today and he wanted to play desperately, but then the medical department said no and that we needed to make further tests. We will do that tomorrow and then we will know more.”
