Relief For Liverpool As Virus-Hit Star Arrives At Anfield Ahead Of Bayern Munich Clash

Roberto Firmino could start for Liverpool against Bayern Munich
Roberto Firmino could start for Liverpool against Bayern Munich

Liverpool fans are breathing a little easier ahead of their Champions League clash with Bayern Munich after Brazilian star Roberto Firmino was spotted at Anfield today.

There were fears he could miss the game after he was reported to be suffering from a virus which kept him out of training on Monday.

But Firmino joined his team-mates as they arrived at Anfield today in readiness for a mouth-watering game against the German giants, raising hopes that he will be fit to start. 

He already has 11 goals this season and has been talked about as one of the players Bayern fear most ahead of the two-legged tie. Firmino netted in the Champions League group stage games against both Paris Saint-Germain and Red Star Belgrade and some of his best performances have come in this competition.

Liverpool are already without several players for the tie which could force some significant changes. Although normally a midfielder, Fabinho is expected to play in defence to cover for the suspended Virgil van Dijk. There are big concerns over Dejan Lovren - also a no-show at the training session on Monday - while Joe Gomez remains sidelined with a broken leg. 

When asked about his potential selection, Klopp told the club's website yesterday: “I don’t know 100 per cent. It’s Monday and we play on Tuesday so most of that should be clear. Gini trained and looked really well. Shaq did a lot, so it will be close, we have to see.

“Dejan, I actually have to wait minute by minute if there is a chance or not. But that’s pretty much all, I would say.”
