(SOUNDBITE) (English) LIVERPOOL MANAGER, JUERGEN KLOPP, SAYING: "So Naby Keita is, will be back in training at least so then first… yeah with the team today then first time with the team.

Ali's (Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker) making big progress but still away from.

He had a proper session yesterday with John Achterberg (Liverpool goalkeeper coach), not in team training yet and if, yeah, we have to see day by day.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) LIVERPOOL MANAGER, JUERGEN KLOPP, SAYING: "It's a really exciting team.

What I said it reminds me a little bit of my team at Dortmund years back when they were really young I mean even younger than this team now at Chelsea but… and people always talking about how they are.

But they only played because they were that good.

They didn't play because they were that young and if you see that they brought in Christian Pulisic in the summer, I'm not sure 100 percent about the money, fifty, sixty million something like and all the players around him have the same value." 4.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) LIVERPOOL MANAGER, JUERGEN KLOPP, SAYING: "If there's one club I would say in the world, who a transfer ban didn't hit that bad it was probably Chelsea because of the..." STORY: Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp confirmed on Friday (September 20) midfielder Naby Keita was back training with the first team, while goalkeeper Alisson is making progress in his recovery from a calf injury ahead of their Premier League match against Chelsea.

Chelsea's youthful, new-look squad reminds Klopp of his Bundesliga-winning former Borussia Dortmund team.

With Chelsea operating under a transfer ban, manager Frank Lampard has turned to the young players in their ranks and the policy has come good so far with all their goalscorers this season being academy players, such as Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount.

Klopp won two league titles and a domestic cup in Germany between 2010 and 2012 with a young squad and the 52-year-old saw similarities in Lampard's side, saying the transfer ban has not really affected Chelsea thanks to their youth policy.

Although new recruit Christian Pulisic is yet to hit the ground running for Chelsea, Klopp said their academy players have stepped up with the support of the experienced players in the squad.

Liverpool, on a fourteen-match winning run in the Premier League, host Chelsea on Sunday (September 22) on the back of a 2-0 loss away to Napoli in their Champions League opener on Tuesday (September 17).
