Liverpool will travel to Portugal with a fully fit squad for Tuesday’s Champions League quarter-final first leg against Benfica.

Jürgen Klopp was asked for a general fitness update during Monday afternoon’s pre-match press conference and confirmed that Naby Keita is back after the midfielder missed the weekend victory over Watford.

Trent Alexander-Arnold – an unused substitute against the Hornets – is also available, along with Joel Matip and Curtis Jones, who sustained knocks at Anfield on Saturday.

The boss said: “Yes, full squad available, absolutely. 

“Curtis was just a little swelling, [it] disappeared then overnight, fine. Same with Joel, which is really helpful because it looked really strange. Yes, and Trent trained now four or five days, I’m not sure exactly, but yes, he is ready as well.”
