Jurgen Klopp provides update on Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain ahead of Man Utd game

Liverpool boss Klopp is currently preparing his side for their crunch Premier League showdown with Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.
The Reds will go into the game knowing victory over Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will see them return to the top of the table.

Liverpool will be without Oxlade-Chamberlain, though, with the midfielder still injured.
The England international has been out since last April, where he damaged his knee in a match against Manchester City.

Klopp has now opened up on the Liverpool star, though, ahead of the United game.
He told the club’s official website: “We don’t have to talk about Ox at the moment because he needs a bit of time.

“He looks so good in training but we need to make him resistant for all the things that are coming up.”
Klopp had previously said: “Rhian Brewster is still only in little parts [of training].
“Ox in bigger parts but not ready to play.

“The rest have trained and will train with us, but there is still a little bit of time.”
Meanwhile, Klopp is hopeful a strong end of the season can secure the Premier League crown for Liverpool.
“Everybody knows in football that Manchester United against Liverpool is one of the biggest games in world football,” he said.
“We have to prepare for that and still play a game.
“I think we are in really good shape to be honest.

“We have had our little problems two, three weeks ago when we drew twice, but we have a chance to play an outstanding last period of the season, with one of the most difficult games as the start of the last period.
“We have to be ready for all of them.
“Now it is a really big one, I know that, I respect that.
“You think it is only a big game for Manchester United? If you go in our dressing room they are all long enough here, that’s the massive thing.”
