Klopp will be able to call upon Firmino once again after he confirmed in his pre-match press conference on Friday that the Brazil international is available to face Arsenal.
However, he is fit enough to be part of the squad for clash with the Gunners, although it remains to be seen if he’ll be selected from the start or will have to settle for a place on the bench.
Firmino’s form during the 2020-21 campaign has been someway short of his best, with the former Hoffenheim striker having only scored one goal in his last 16 matches in all competitions.
That came in a 3-1 win over Tottenham, with Firmino’s struggles in front of goal having coincided with what has been a disappointing season for the Premier League title holders, who find themselves in seventh place in the table.
