Liverpool could be set to soon welcome back both Joe Gomez and Naby Keita to the first-team squad following the pair’s return to training, as reported in a tweet from Goal journalist, Neil Jones.
With the Reds’ midfield options particularly squeezed going into the busy December period, it will be a welcome boost for Jurgen Klopp’s men as they appear to be getting over the worst of their injury blues.
