Jurgen Klopp tips Ozan Kabak to go straight into Liverpool team for Man City


New Liverpool signing Ozan Kabak is available for Sunday’s visit of Manchester City after his international clearance came through.

The Turkey international joined on loan from Schalke but unlike fellow deadline-day arrival from Preston Ben Davies, he was not in the squad for Wednesday’s defeat at home to Brighton because his paperwork had not been received.

He could, however, go straight into the team to face the Premier League leaders on Sunday.

“With our situation we will see who can play again, who can not play again and then we will see,” said manager Jurgen Klopp. “In an ideal world we’d have a few weeks to work on defensive things, especially on organisation.

“Ben and Ozan yesterday had an analysis meeting where they got shown all the stuff we do usually, like a ‘centre-half movie’.

“Today proper session, tomorrow proper session and then we will see.”

Klopp hopes to have goalkeeper Alisson Becker, Sadio Mane and Fabinho available for the City game after all missed recent matches.

“Ali feels much better, good enough to have an individual session today and Sadio and Fab will be in parts of team training today,” he added.
