It looks like Liverpool will be at full strength next weekend for the Merseyside Derby, with Andy Robertson and Mo Salah overcoming recent minor injury concerns.
The duo both featured in a friendly game played at Anfield yesterday – so should be totally fine by next Sunday.
This is according to Dom King of the Mail, who tweeted the news:
Liverpool squad has no fitness worries so far ahead of first game back. There was an inter-squad game at Anfield yesterday, which involved Mo Salah and Andy Robertson after they had sat out Blackburn friendly as a precaution.

We think Jurgen Klopp’s first starting XI of the season’s resumption will be as follows: Alisson, Trent, Robbo, Gomez, van Dijk; Fabinho, Henderson, Keita, Mane, Salah, Firmino.
The only contentious spot is whether to select Gini Wijnaldum, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain or Keita alongside Fabinho and captain Hendo in midfield – but we think the manner in which Keita has regained fitness and shone in the off-season might well have earned him a start – especially as the other two have had niggling injury issues.
Liverpool need six more points to guarantee the title – but only three if Arsenal do us a favour and beat Manchester City on Wednesday.
