Jones injury boost, Bradley setback & Doucoure ‘staying’ – Latest LFC News

Wednesday brought the welcome return of one midfielder to training, while the list of potential incomings before the deadline looks to be narrowing.


Jones trains ahead of Aston Villa

Having already suffered an early injury setback this season, Curtis Jones has been pictured in training as the team prepare to host Aston Villa this weekend.

The midfielder missed the victories over Bournemouth and Newcastle having sustained an ankle injury, but it appears he could be in contention for Sunday’s clash.

Jurgen Klopp confirmed ahead of the trip to St. James’ Park that both Jones and Thiago were expected to be back in full training this week, but the latter wasn’t involved in the latest session.

Thiago may simply have been training away from the squad, but a timeline for his return remains unclear having not featured since April.
