After a relentless season to date which saw the Reds compete in just under 40 fixtures across five different competitions, Klopp’s senior figures were handed a week’s long break to rest and recover.
Normal service was resumed on Monday, however, as the boss and members of the first team linked back up at a blustery Melwood.
Storm Ciara has been wreaking havoc across the UK and Ireland in recent days, ensuring players who sought out the sun in the last week were greeted with a typical English welcome home gift.
While the storm has disrupted travel routes, the Reds safely made their return to kick start their preparations for the trip to Norwich on Saturday – with chairman Tom Werner watching on from the sidelines.

And the boss will have plenty of options at his disposal as Liverpool were bolstered by the return of Milner and Mane who took part in the session alongside a near-full squad.
The former has been on the sidelines since early January after sustaining a hamstring injury in the win over Everton, missing Liverpool’s next eight games, while Mane has been absent since securing victory at Wolves.
The pair are expected to be in contention for a place in the matchday squad on the weekend, which presents Klopp with a welcome selection headache.
With Adam Lallana successfully recovering from a virus to feature late in the piece against Southampton in the first team’s last fixture, Xherdan Shaqiri was not pictured at Melwood and remains as the sole absentee with a calf injury keeping him in the treatment room.
With six games in 21 days, starting from the trip to Norfolk, Klopp will be afforded the luxury of calling upon various members of his squad throughout should he need to.
The Reds will head to Norwich with a 55 point advantage over their counterparts and have an opportunity to extend their lead at the top to 25 points following Man City’s game being postponed over the weekend.
