The eve of Liverpool’s penultimate Champions League group game against Porto saw a welcome boost in numbers as six Reds eased lingering injury and illness concerns.
A 24-man squad were present at Kirkby on Tuesday in the early evening to put the finishing touches on their preparations for the visit of Porto.
A number of fitness clouds hovered over the squad following on from the win over Arsenal and with Jurgen Klopp having kept his cards close to his chest in his press conference, training offered a positive update.
The boss did hint at changes earlier in the day having said: “We have to think about ourselves and our schedule, and the situation of our players first.”
It would, therefore, remain a strong enough side to ease those who look to question Klopp’s respect of the competition while also carefully managing his side ahead of the festive run.
