Liverpool get injury boost ahead of Chelsea clash, Klopp confirms
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is quite confident Christian Benteke will be there for this weekend’s Premier League encounter against Chelsea.
The Belgian striker returned after around one month-long spell in the 1-1 draw against Southampton last Sunday, coming off the bench to give his side the much-needed lead in the 80th minute.
Unfortunately, Benteke once again reported a discomfort in the knee after the Premier League clash. He was rested as a safety precaution in the Capital One Cup win against Bournemouth last night.
But after producing his first win as Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has another good news for the Liverpool supporters.
“I think Christian will be fit on Saturday. He had little problems and with our ‘striker situation’ we can’t take a risk. Divock played again [tonight] and he did well – he worked really hard. But I think Christian will be back,” he revealed.
But Klopp confirmed Daniel Sturridge, after suffering a fresh injury, will not feature in the Premier League showdown with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Klopp said: “With Daniel, we have to talk about him when he can train and then he will need, I don’t know, two, three, four, five, six or seven days training. That is normal. Each footballer needs it and it’s not important how good you are unless you have enough strength to play in this really intensive league.
“There is no pressure from me – I can’t put pressure on him or the doctor or the physiotherapist, I have to wait. And when he is back, he has to train.”
