After not making the squad that faced Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, Firmino is set to be fit for Hull City next week.
The in-form Brazilian has been handed a spot in Brazil’s upcoming World Cup Qualifying matches in October along with Coutinho.
Klopp has said that Firmino will be assessed ahead of the EFL cup match against Derby County on Tuesday.
“They were really difficult decisions to make”
Klopp said on not starting Firmino.
“Everyone said we could take the risk, but I heard the word ‘risk’ too often and said ‘no we can’t take it, Roberto is out’.”
Klopp went on to say.
Liverpool play Derby County in the third round of the Football League Cup. Will Roberto feature?
