Massive Trent fitness boost but no Mane renewal talks – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool are back in action tomorrow as they host relegation-threatened Watford at Anfield. Today’s news is on fitness in the squad and possible summer moves.


Trent back in training and just one player out

Jurgen Klopp will have his hands full when trying to pick players for the upcoming games, but given the nature and importance of them, maybe that’s just as well.

Trent Alexander-Arnold is back in training after recovering over the international break, and while it’s still somewhat touch and go to face Watford, he will be available against Benfica.

In fact, Klopp has the entire squad available to him bar one player, with Naby Keita the only individual still struggling with a knock.
