During Friday's post match conference, Klopp said that: "Millie is Millie and that means he is again ahead of schedule. He had, yes, a little bit with the [hamstring] muscle.
"He will not be available for tomorrow, that’s not possible, but hopefully the game after that he will be available again.
He added that: "Alberto trained for the first time really pain-free yesterday so he will probably be in contention. Dom Solanke has muscle problems and will not be involved.
