Injured quartet return & fitness coach to depart – Latest Liverpool FC News

Liverpool have been boosted by the return of four players during Tuesday’s training session, while Ruben Amorim could be a step closer to becoming the Reds’ next manager.


Liverpool 4 back in training

Jurgen Klopp has been hit by so many injuries to key players this season, but things are finally starting to look healthy again.

On Tuesday, Alisson, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Diogo Jota were all back in full training with their teammates, with Stefan Bajcetic also involved.

It remains to be seen if any can be involved in the upcoming clashes with Atalanta and Crystal Palace, but it is still a major boost.

This means that Joel Matip, Thiago and Ben Doak are the only absent players now – finally, some better luck in the fitness department!
