Kylian Mbappe is expecting Paris Saint-Germain to debut their new Jordan line in style when the Ligue 1 giants visit Anfield on Tuesday evening in the Champions League group stages.

Roberto Firmino suffered an abrasion after being poked in his left eye by Tottenham's Jan Vertonghen on Saturday and is a doubt to partner Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

Speaking at the pre-match press conference, Klopp said: 'I don't follow things like that but when I saw a few games at the World Cup I know people were talking about that when it looked like he made more of a situation than it was.

"It is a hard group, but it is the very nature of the Champions League to have that".

"We are obviously in close contact with him and it improved already - but in this moment I can't say if he will be available for tomorrow". It is painful and no-one needs that but he will be fine - we don't know exactly when. "We'll try to avoid him winning challenges, which is a big job to do to be honest", said Klopp, who has guided Liverpool to five straight wins at the start of the new Premier League season. "They got little injuries in the under-23 game with Swansea".

Meanwhile, east of Khan Yunis, a Palestinian male sustained a fatal gunshot shot, according to the ministry. Two other Palestinians were killed on Friday in other sectors of the border, and fifty wounded.

"We will see the full package, the football package, and we have to cope with that".

'He tried to take the responsibility and play for his country with not being fit and he didn't play an outstanding game for Brazil but if Neymar is fit Brazil wins it.

Firmino has two goals and two assists this season and scored 10 in 13 in the Champions League last season as Liverpool reached the final, losing to Real Madrid.

If Firmino is ruled out then Liverpool will be low on options up front as Klopp has also confirmed that strikers Dominic Solanke and Divock Origi are expected to miss the Champions League clash tomorrow night. He got a knock and we will see how that develops. Unfortunately for us, he has a lot of them.
