Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum will all undergo late fitness tests ahead of Saturday’s meeting with Bournemouth.
Liverpool have been without Alexander-Arnold for their last three league outings due to a knee issue, whilst Henderson and Wijnaldum were both unexpected absentees for Monday’s draw at West Ham due to muscle and knee problems, respectively.
The trio’s return to full training marks welcomed relief for Jurgen Klopp amid a sticky patch fuelled by disruptive injuries across the pitch.
Discussing their possible availability, the Reds’ boss told Liverpoolfc.com: “Trent trained yesterday for the first time and didn’t mention any issues or any problems. After four weeks for a first session, we need to see what we do there.”
“Jordan trained yesterday as well for the first time; it was not that long a break but it was a muscle issue. We need to have another look today.”
“Gini trained yesterday completely normal, but I don’t know in the moment. We have to see.”
It would come as no surprise were Alexander-Arnold to retain his starting spot immediately, with Klopp often hailing the right-back’s tendency to heal quickly in the past.
His return would be valuable in restoring some familiarity at the back, not to mention providing Liverpool with another key attacking outlet.
Both Henderson and Wijnaldum would also be in contention to feature if fit having been dearly missed during the Reds’ clash at the London Stadium.
