Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says that Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino will be fit to feature against Manchester United on Saturday afternoon.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said that Brazilian duo Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino will be "okay" to feature in their clash with arch rivals Manchester United tomorrow afternoon.

The pair returned to England late on Wednesday after their national side's 3-0 victory over Chile in Sao Paulo and were back in training the following morning.

Yesterday doubt was thrown on Coutinho's involvement against the Red Devils due to his heavy workload during the international break, but Klopp is adamant that he has had sufficient recovery time.

"We work close together with other clubs to bring south American players home," he told reporters this afternoon. "Phil played two games, Roberto five minutes.

"They had a long flight.. but it was pretty comfortable. I saw the price! They should be okay."

Liverpool go into the clash at Anfield seven points behind Jose Mourinho's side in the Premier League table.
