Jürgen Klopp has had a lucky season in terms of injuries, but in the wake of an important semi-final match against FC Barcelona, the manager finds himself without the services of both Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.

In their place could be fan favorite youngster Rhian Brewster, who has recently returned from long term injury.

Klopp claims that the 19-year-old is “ready” for the challenge and will most likely make the bench on Tuesday when Messi and co. come calling.

“Yes, there is a big chance. It’s nearly sure. It’s guaranteed,” Klopp said.

“The situations are always like this. In an ideal world, in a season you always have much more players than you can involve in a squad.

“Rhian has now arrived with us after being heavily injured. Day by day, he has got better and better. He has been in outstanding shape for the last three or four weeks but the other players were there as well.”

I don’t know about you, but I smell a hat trick in the cards.
