Sheffield United welcome the Reds to Bramall Lane for the Premier League’s lunchtime kick-off on Saturday and the visitors have been boosted by some positive news on the injury front.

Fellow frontman Devock Origi has missed the last three matches with an ankle injury. However, Klopp revealed that both are now available to take on the Blades.
