Roberto Firmino could miss Bayern Munich Champions League tie

Firmino could miss Liverpool’s Champions League tie against Bayern Munich after sitting out of training on Monday with a virus. Firmino is the fourth Reds player to fall ill this month, following a warm-weather trip to Dubai in January.

Liverpool, who were not in FA Cup action last weekend, travelled to Marbella, but it has seen Firmino fall ill on their return report Sky Sports. Dejan Lovren also missed training and will have a last-minute fitness test on a hamstring injury.

Jurgen Klopp gave an injury update on Monday, saying: “I don’t know 100%. It’s Monday and we play on Tuesday so most of that should be clear. “Gini (Wijnaldum) trained and looked really well. (Xherdan) Shaqiri did a lot, so it will be close, we have to see.

“Dejan (Lovren), I actually have to wait minute by minute if there is a chance or not. But that’s pretty much all, I would say.” If Lovren does not make it, then Fabinho is likely to partner Joel Matip in central defence with Virgil van Dijk suspended.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain took part in some of the session as he continues his rehabilitation from a serious knee injury.
