Two days before the Reds' game against Manchester United in the Premier League, Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp said he is still waiting for final reports on the status of injured stars Mohamed Salah and Joel Matip.

Salah, 27, sustained an ankle injury during a Premier League game against Leicester City on 5 October after taking a knock in a nasty challenge from Leicester midfielder Hamza Choudhury. On Tuesday, he seemed on the verge of returning to full fitness after he re-joined trainings for the first time since his injury.

Sky Sports reported that Klopp could not confirm whether the injured duo would be back for the trip to Old Trafford.

"They (Salah and Matip) are doing better. How good we have to see. There's two more sessions to come. We have to make decisions and that's how it is. Nothing is fixed yet."

On a separate note, Klopp offered a positive update on the fitness of goalkeeper Alisson, who has been out with injury since August.

"Alisson looks completely fine and the others had sessions. Two sessions to go and we will see," Klopp said.  

"We will have to see how we deal with that situation. So far everything is good but still two sessions to come."

Liverpool are top of the table with a perfect eight wins out of eight Premier League matches this season and are on a winning run of 16 consecutive league matches.
