  • Lucas Leiva on Liverpool future: I don't know what will happen, but...

Liverpool's injury crisis somewhat worsened during Jurgen Klopp's pre-match press conference on Thursday as it was announced that Joel Matip is unlikely to feature in this weekend's game against Crystal Palace. It would be a big honour to stay here for long time. "We don't usually talk about these sort of things but in this particular case I think we can", the Liverpool manager said.

"He is a fantastic goalkeeper, the goalkeeper of the English national team, the highest quality, but we have highest-quality goalkeepers". However, since the start of last season, Firmino has been involved in 34 PL goals, which is more than any other Reds player. There is competition here already.

Earlier this year, Klopp had stated that Liverpool will be spending a lot of money in the summer to improve their squad and the German is willing to spend around £20 million for the 30-year-old goalkeeper.

The team once again suffered setbacks with captain Jordan Henderson getting injured in February, Adam Lallana picking up a thigh injury on worldwide duty with England at the end of March and Mane suffering a knee injury in the Merseyside Derby against Everton.

Matip and Lucas worked away from the main group with the rehab staff but they have made sufficient progress to boost their chances of lining up against Sam Allardyce's side. Even he didn't say anything but there's a bit of a muscle problem.

Henderson situation "not cool". "At this moment he can not train".

Klopp's side are unbeaten in seven games and defender Dejan Lovren says they need to maintain that level of consistency during the run-in. He is a strong boy with good tackles and blocks. It is good news, then, to discover that both are making good progress with a view to starting against Crystal Palace on Sunday.

"If they play to his strengths, Christian Benteke could be a handful and Wilfried Zaha has looked in the mood since the turn of the year". He has confidence and is in a good run.

However, Klopp insisted that Hart is not a transfer target despite being an excellent player.
