Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp hasn't decided whether Roberto Firmino will feature against Tottenham this weekend, according to the Liverpool Echo.

The revered German coach is set to take charge of the Anfield outfit for the first time on Saturday, but he may well have to do it without the services of Firmino, who has been struggling with a back injury. 

The Brazil international has been on the sidelines after suffering the injury against Carlisle United in the Capital One Cup last month.

However, the same report from the Liverpool Echo say that the 24-year-old is closing in on a return to full training ahead of this weekend's fixture. 

It's far from certain as to whether he will prove his fitness in time, but Reds fans will certainly be hoping to see the best out of their summer signing under the guidance of Klopp. 

Firmino adapting 

Let's be honest, it hasn't been easy for Firmino to adapt to his new surroundings. Ultimately, the physical demands of the Premier League are different to those of the Bundesliga, but there's no reason why the playmaker won't go on to become a top player for the Reds. 

Firmino is extremely talented and is capable of proving his credentials in England. With bags of creativity and an eye for goal, the player will be determined to express himself to the Kop. With Klopp at the helm, that could happen sooner rather than later. 

Do you expect to see the best of Firmino under Klopp? Have your say below!
