Naby Keita to play a bit part role in order to ease him back into the squad
Jurgen Klopp is confirmed to not start Naby Keita immediately in the derby in order to ease him back into the team. A midfield of Naby Keita, Thiago Alcantara and Jordan Henderson will be Liverpool’s priority and it has taken a lot of time for that to happen. Naby Keita has been reported to have undergone a special training regime which was aimed to reinforce his muscles and was made to sit in the sidelines in order to not have any recurring injuries. How much effective it is will be known in the longevity of Keita’s play time.
Meanwhile Dominic Calvert-Lewin who missed the last two matches for Everton against Manchester City and Fulham is fit to play in the Merseyside Derby. The last two games he missed ended in defeat for Everton and they will be hoping that his return will boost their results.
