Liverpool returned to training at the AXA Centre in Kirkby on Wednesday with Mohamed Salah, Curtis Jones, and Joel Matip as part of the action.
Liverpool have been handed an injury boost after Curtis Jones returned to full training on Wednesday.
The Reds have also been buoyed by the fact Joel Matip was able to train without issue ahead of Sunday’s visit from Aston Villa.
Jones has missed the last two games against Bournemouth and Newcastle with an ankle complaint but was back at work with his colleagues at the AXA Training Centre on Wednesday.
It means the England Under-21 international could be cleared for a comeback on Sunday afternoon as the Reds look to sign off for the international break by claiming a third straight Premier League victory.
Matip, who started his first game of the season in Sunday’s 2-1 win at Newcastle following an injury to Ibrahima Konate, was withdrawn in the second half for Premier League debutant Jarell Quansah, leading to suggestions the defensive ranks would further be depleted with captain Virgil van Dijk suspended for the weekend.
Jurgen Klopp confirmed after the game that the switch was merely a precaution, however, which has been backed up by Matip’s inclusion in Wednesday’s session at the Kirkby complex. The center-back is almost certain to line up next to Joe Gomez when Villa visits Anfield.
Konate, meanwhile, appeared to sit out the training session as he bids to get back fit after an injury in the 3-1 victory against Bournemouth on August 19. Klopp was hopeful of a return last week but the Frenchman may be forced to wait until after the international break if his situation doesn’t improve in the coming days.
Stefan Bajcetic and Thiago Alcantara were not pictured as their respective efforts to get fit from injuries sustained in March and April go on, although Mohamed Salah trained as normal as tentative speculation linking him with a shock move to Saudi Arabia continues.
Liverpool continue to insist their No.11 is not for sale and he trained with his colleagues as expected on Wednesday ahead of Friday night’s 11 p.m. deadline for European clubs.
