Liverpool trio Alisson, Fabinho and Diogo Jota played no part in Liverpool’s 2-0 victory over Sheffield United on Sunday.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp expects to have Alisson and Fabinho back against Chelsea and is hopeful Diogo Jota could also feature at Anfield on Thursday.
Asked whether the trio could return to face Chelsea at his post-match press conference, Klopp replied: “Alisson and Fabinho, I’m pretty sure [will be available].
“With Diogo, he was with us in the hotel, but he got sick overnight and we had to send him home.
“It depends how quick he will recover, obviously. He was in the squad and as I said before, he trained with the team and it all looked really good but unfortunately he got sick overnight.
“I think he will be available but I don’t know.”
