Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Virgil van Dijk trained ahead of the club’s clash with Leicester City.
The defender was a doubt after struggling with an illness but was able to train on Monday.
The Foxes arrive at Anfield on Wednesday looking to become the first side to win at the home of the league leaders this season.

Klopp’s side will be looking to keep the pressure on Manchester City by claiming three points tomorrow.
They will be desperate to try and do so with van Dijk who is currently a doubt for the fixture.
Van Dijk has played every single minute of Premier League action for the Reds this term.
However, whilst away with the Merseyside club in Dubai, he picked up an illness.
The illness looked as though it would prevent the 27-year-old from playing against Leicester.
Fortunately for Liverpool, the outcome looks set to be positive with the defender returning to training on Monday.
“He was a little bit ill but he trained yesterday – so we will see.”
