Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is hopeful defender Virgil Van Dijk will be fit enough to face Leicester.

The centre-back has been ill since the club returned from a training camp in Dubai last week but was back on the pitch with the squad at Melwood on Tuesday.

"Virg was a little bit ill but he trained yesterday. He will train today and then we will see," said the Reds boss.

Klopp has had a number of injury issues but most of the short-term problems have cleared up just in time.

"Dejan (hamstring) is fine. Gini (Wijnaldum) trained, Fabinho will train today. Trent (Alexander-Arnold) getting closer and closer - looks all very positive - but will not be ready for tomorrow."
