It’s been a few days since Takumi Minamino has officially been a Liverpool player, but he could be thrusted into action in the Merseyside derby tomorrow. It’s expected that Jurgen Klopp will make a lot of changes to the side that took on Sheffield United on Thursday night.

“I think it’s pretty much the same situation, I’m not 100 per cent sure,” Jurgen said.

“Virg was injured before, he didn’t play for a while I think for Southampton. So, when he came in, I remember the morning session, I decided in the morning because it was not the actual plan; then, in the morning I just thought, ‘Why not? Come on, let’s give it a try.’ It was obviously a good decision that time.

“Takumi is here and had three sessions with the team now, that’s not so much. But it’s football still.

“He had kind of time off when Salzburg went into the winter break, he had time off and we were not allowed to bring him here to train with us in that time. He was back in Japan, which was nice as well. He came here in a good shape. So, let’s see.”
