The Reds went into the international break top of the table and with a 100 per cent league record, but also with a fair few injury concerns.
In addition, Klopp and his coaching team – including throw-in coach Thomas Gronnemark – welcomed back two more faces to the fold; centre-back Joel Matip, who had missed the last two games with injury; and midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who sat out the win over the Foxes.
The latter has had a stop-start time of matters this season, which is to be expected after coming back from a long-term injury, though his latest absence had nothing to do with any recurrence—it was reported as a head injury from training.
Matip, though, has been a constantly impressive performer at the heart of the defence and, though Liverpool beat both Salzburg and Leicester in his absence, it can be expected that he returns to the side against Man United.
Lovren played twice over the international break for Croatia, but Gomez was sub twice for England.
With the quartet back in training, it leaves just Xherdan Shaqiri as the only senior not yet back involved with the first team.
Herbie Kane and Yasser Larouci were also in training with the seniors at Melwood, as the Reds prepare for the all-important trip to Old Trafford where they’ll be seeking a record-equalling 18th consecutive league win.
