Jürgen Klopp is positive about the possibility of Roberto Firmino being able to return in Sunday's Premier League clash with Manchester City.

The Brazilian sat out last weekend’s 2-1 victory over Burnley at Anfield – only the second game he has missed in the league throughout the whole season.

But a week’s worth of light training would not prevent Firmino from featuring at the Etihad Stadium – where he opened his Reds account last term – according to Klopp.

“Roberto will be well recovered,” said the manager.

“He’s training already. He’s trained the whole week, but to involve him in team training made no sense so far. If he can be involved in team training on Saturday then physical-wise he has no issues because it’s good for him.

“He has played nearly the whole season so far, so if he has one week with more treatment than training and another week with light training for him, then yes, he would be completely OK.”
