Fabinho and Naby Keita are in line to make their first appearances for Liverpool in Saturday's friendly with Chester FC, according to Jürgen Klopp.

The summer signings started pre-season training with their new teammates on Monday and, all being well, will feature on the pitch this weekend, most likely for 45 minutes.

Asked whether fans can look forward to seeing the pair in action during the game, Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com: “Yes, hopefully.

“We still have two or three sessions until we play; unfortunately in football a lot of things can happen. But if nothing happens then they will play of course.

“We don’t want to waste time. They are in, it’s good. It’s our first pre-season game so let’s start.

“If they’ll start, I don’t know, to be honest. I haven’t made the line-up so far, I have to see who is available. But, yes, they will be involved for sure.”
