CHELSEA V LIVERPOOL: TEAM NEWS.
Jürgen Klopp has not ruled Divock Origi out of Liverpool’s trip to Chelsea on Sunday, despite initially expecting the forward to be out of action for up to two weeks.
The Belgian international sustained an ankle issue during last Saturday’s 3-1 win over Newcastle United that forced him off the field during the first half.
Scan suggested that Origi could be out for a fortnight; however, Klopp confirmed on Friday morning the No.27 was making good progress in his rehabilitation programme.
He told reporters: “Div, we have to see day by day, that’s how it was from the first day - how can he deal with the pain and stuff like that. We will see. It is pretty early, so I don’t know exactly what the medical department will tell me [today] about that case. “I think it’s unlikely [he will be fit for Chelsea] but why should I rule him out? But it’s unlikely.” Elsewhere, Naby Keita has resumed full training on Friday with his teammates after a hip issue, while Alisson Becker continues to take steps forward in his recovery from a calf problem. Nathaniel Clyne remains sidelined.

Newcastle United 0-0 Brighton
Arguably one of the dullest games in recent memory. Newcatle ended the game with less than a third of possession. Such a stat would be acceptable against a City or Liverpool... but if playing Brighton at home doesn't release the shackles, nothing will. Brighton created the better chances but the biggest cheer of the night came with the return of Andy Carroll 10 mins from the end.
