Thiago Alcantara, Fabinho, Curtis Jones and Virgil van Dijk are set to be available for Liverpool’s clash with Leicester City.

Jürgen Klopp confirmed on Monday that the quartet have returned to training following the end of their isolation periods due to positive COVID-19 tests.

Meanwhile, the boss also reported no new fitness concerns ahead of Tuesday’s trip to King Power Stadium. 

“Yeah, the boys who had to isolate, or had COVID, are back,” Klopp said.

“That means Fab, Virgil, Curtis and Thiago. Thiago was the latest, he came back and trained yesterday for the first time with the team. 

“We have one young player who is now isolating and two staff. It’s really tricky, every morning when you come in it’s a little bit like a lottery. You hope it’s all fine and then one case… that’s the situation, but apart from that we are fine.”
