Spain international Thiago finally resumed first team training this week, and is hoping to make his comeback over the Christmas period.
Klopp said on Thursday: “Thiago has made his first steps back towards team training. Not full yet.
“After a long time, we cannot rush it."
"Other guys are closer, Shaq trained well. Milly [Milner], yesterday a full session. We have still two more training days before we make a decision."
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is also back in contention for this weekend, while Thiago will hope to feature at Newcastle next week.
