Liverpool injury latest ahead of Premier League return against Everton

Liverpool will resume their Premier League campaign next week as they look to finally claim the title that has eluded them for so long.

And it looks like Jurgen Klopp will have more or less a full first-team squad to choose from.

But there are a few players who are still on the road to recovery.

We take a look at how they’re progressing…



The title is almost Klopp’s

Alisson

Goalkeeper Alisson missed Liverpool’s last competitive fixture – way back in March when they lost 3- 2 to Atletico Madrid in the last 16 of the Champions League.

He had a hip injury – meaning Adrian was forced to deputise.

But Alisson is now taking part in training and friendly matches, and is back at 100 percent.

He will be straight back into the Reds’ starting line-up.

Xherdan Shaqiri

Shaqiri has also been spotted heading to training in recent days – although it’s not yet clear how active a part he’s been taking in sessions.

He has made less than a dozen appearances in all competitions so far this season due to a string of muscle injuries, starting off with a calf knock at the start of the campaign.

When fit, he has been used mostly as a substitute, and was last seen in the final seconds of the away win against Tottenham Hotspur back in January – his only outing so far this year.

Mohamed Salah

The Egyptian King sat out the 6-0 friendly thumping of Blackburn last weekend, taking his place in the stands instead.

Indeed, top scorer Salah sat out a number of training sessions last week.

Liverpool insist it is merely a precaution and that he will be good to go next weekend.

Andrew Robertson

The Scotland international, a key man this term, is in a similar situation to Salah.

He sat out the meeting with Blackburn as a precaution, and the club state they have no concerns.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

The England midfielder made an early exit from the win over Blackburn, despite making a positive start to the game.

He assisted Sadio Mane’s opener, only to take a knock to the ankle.

He will continue to be monitored and it’s not considered serious.

Nathaniel Clyne

Clyne is a long-term absentee, and has played no part this season due to the anterior cruciate ligament injury he suffered last summer.

That means the right-back has now spent 10 months in rehabilitation, and is not back in full training yet.

He will not be available for selection when the season resumes – despite the three-month hiatus buying him some extra recovery time.

The 29-year-old’s contract expires at the end of June and there has not been any indication that it might be extended.
