Jürgen Klopp has offered an update on the progress of Luis Diaz, Roberto Firmino, Diogo Jota and Virgil van Dijk

While klopp was speaking at a press conference on Friday morning, the Reds boss said: “Closer, yes, of course.

“Luis takes longer but Diogo, Bobby and Virgil, a couple of weeks and [then they] can join training, and then we have to see how quick it goes from there on.”

Also Klopp was asked about the condition of Arthur Melo, who has been sidelined with a calf issue since October.

He said: “I would say pretty good, so he’s running a lot. Two or three weeks, I think, maybe until he can resume with team training.

“But it looks good for a while already. So it was now a long injury and he needs a proper build-up. He was not a part of team training or whatever.

“Fabio Carvalho is clearly out. He has a little thing. Did anybody tell me that he can train today? I don’t think so, but maybe he can train today but he will not be 100 per cent ready to play for the weekend.

“Millie was not in training for one day but he’s fine – he has no injury at the moment. Nat has a proper, proper cold.”

Reacting ahead of the tricky Fa Cup fourth round tie his side face against Arsenal on Friday night, the Spaniard detailed just how much he has analysed Liverpool.

“I learned a lot watching by Liverpool,”  Guardiola said.

“It’s of his analysis of the Reds ahead of Friday night’s tricky FA Cup fourth-round tie against Arsenal. “I learned a lot playing for Liverpool,” said the City boss. “This is the team I have watched the most for obvious reasons, because they have been our biggest rivals in recent years and sooner or later they will come back and learn the club, the manager and of course the players. They got it. “If there is a feeling, I try to copy something. If I like it, I feel it and I can adapt to the players I have. Not because they made it, which means I copy-pasted. No no no! “

He said ,“I tried to copy some things, if I feel it. If I like it, feel it, can adapt with the players I have. Not because they have success, that means I’m going to copy and paste. No, no, no!”

Liverpool’s coach Jurgen Klopp side and Guardiola have faced each other 27 times with the Klopp recording 12 wins to the Spaniard’s 10. There have been five stalemates.
