Liverpool Manager, Jurgen Klopp, has told a presser that Sadio Mane and Adam Lallana are fit to play in the UEFA Champions League against Napoli tomorrow at Anfield.

Sadio Mane came back from an injury last weekend against Bournemouth after being on sidelines for picking a knock in his foot in a dramatic Liverpool’s 1-0 win in the Merseyside Derby, while Lallana sustained a head injury during last weekend’s 4-0 win against Bournemouth, which took them to the summit of the Premier League, one point ahead of second placed Manchester City.

Speaking of his side’s team news ahead of the Champions League game against the Naples, he mentioned of the situation of the two star men.

“Sadio can deal with the pain obviously – it looked like that in Bournemouth, so that’s cool.

“It’s good enough that we can consider him at least.

“We have two sessions still to come – we’ll train tomorrow morning as well. That’s very important. We have the meeting to do. In the squad there is nothing really serious after the game, that’s good.

“We will see how Dejan [Lovren] is doing. Yesterday he was out on the pitch and looked quite well. Can he be part of training today or not? We will see. Squad-wise, [there is] no bad news at least.”

On Lallana’s injury, he said: “[Adam Lallana] looked fine,” he said. “Nobody told me differently. He was running yesterday,” the German told a press conference.

The Reds faces a tough test to qualify into the last sixteen of the competition, and defeat will see them fail to qualify to the next stage, since they are sitting third in Group C, with the Naples on top with nine points seconded by Paris Saint German with eight points and anchored by Crvena Zvezda with four points.
