Liverpool boss has confirmed that and are back in contention to face but revealed the game will come too soon for Mohamed Salah.

Nunez has missed Liverpool’s last three games after picking up an ankle injury against Brentford, while Szoboszlai has not been seen since Liverpool’s 4-1 win over Chelsea at the end of January.

The Reds remain but Klopp confirmed that both Nunez and Szoboszlai could be involved on the weekend after returning to training.

‘Darwin and Dom trained yesterday with the team,’ the German confirmed at his pre-match press conference. ‘They looked good but we’ll wait to see how they react.’

Saturday’s game away against Forest, though, will come too soon for Salah as he continues to manage his comeback from a hamstring injury.

The Egyptian made a cameo appearance against Brentford but has since missed the last three games after experiencing discomfort following his brief return.

‘I don’t think Mo is too far off but he will not feature tomorrow,’ Klopp said when asked about the Egyptian’s fitness.

‘From there, it’s still touch and go like the other two [Nunez and Szoboszlai] but for Mo it’s a little bit longer. But I think next week it’s possible he could return. He’s on the way back, definitely.’

Elsewhere, Waturo Endo and Andy Robertson did not train with the squad on Thursday and remain doubts for the weekend

Endo left the Carabao Cup final at Wembley in a protective boot and missed the side’s midweek game against Southampton, while the Scottish left-back missed out with illness.

‘The plan is that they both join in today but we will have to see if that works out.’

Ibrahima Konate, Luis Diaz and Alexis Mac Allister, meanwhile, who all started on the bench against Southampton are fully fit for the weekend, although Klopp confirmed that Mac Allister has been dealing with a similar illness to Robertson.

Alisson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ryan Gravenberch, Curtis Jones and Diogo Jota remain longer-term absentees.

Liverpool will hope to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League to four points before second-place Manchester City take on Manchester United on Sunday.
