The triple injury boost will be a relief for Klopp after Sadio Mane became the latest Liverpool player struck down by injury on worldwide duty.

It's stated in the report that Senegal boss Aliou Cisse insisted Mane still had to travel to Sudan to be with the rest of the squad despite the fact he won't feature in the game and the Liverpool star underwent a scan after arriving in Khartoum on Monday.

Mane's injury as reported in the Mail also comes after Virgil van Dijk was sent home by Holland because of a rib issue the defender hasn't been able to shake off since being substituted at Southampton. It does not necessarily represent the position of Liverpool Football Club.

Koeman went on to suggest Van Dijk will be fit to play for Liverpool in the Premier League game at Huddersfield on Saturday, despite the ongoing problem.

There is some positive injury news for Klopp in that Adam Lallana continues to participate in full training for Liverpool.

Sources have told ESPN FC that Liverpool believe it is too early to determine whether any of the injured players are doubts for Saturday's trip to Huddersfield Town.
