         Jota was injured in the 2-0 Champions League win over Inter in midweek, while Firmon, who replaced the game and scored a goal, suffered a muscle injury. Poor meat helped the team win the ufabet game 3-1 at Norwich City last weekend. 

         Asked about Jota and Firmino’s availability, Klopp said: “Yes, it’s too early. I don’t even know if I have to wait until the last minute to make a decision. As I said, it’s too early.”

The 43-cap Super Eagles international missed four Leicester games last month through his participation at the African Cup of Nations.
