The Brazilian picked up the foot injury in the final moments of the FA Cup semi-final win at the start of April, forcing him to miss the last five games.
Jurgen Klopp described the injury as “a little strain on the middle foot bone” that proved “very painful” and tedious to treat.
But after making progress in his individual programme, Firmino returned to team training on Thursday – ensuring no senior player is on the injury list with six games to go.
The manager was pleased to report Liverpool’s No. 9 was back running prior to the Reds’ trip to Villarreal, but he will be delighted now that Firmino is back in the mix.

Whether Spurs’ visit comes too soon to inject him back into the XI remains to be seen, but his availability will be welcomed by Klopp as he looks to rotate his forward line.
Academy duo Luke Chambers and Oakley Cannonier were also present with the first team at Kirkby, following on from their Lancashire Senior Cup triumph on Wednesday evening.
