“He is quite positive but I’m not sure what I can make of that, to be honest. We will see.
“I think the rest came through without problems.
“He [Fabinho] has a good feeling and that gives me a better feeling than I had and I took him off. What that means, I don’t know yet.”
Meanwhile, Klopp confirmed that Andy Robertson was rested against Villa, having been omitted from the match-day squad.

“Apart from that, we should be fine.”
