And it appears that Fabio Carvalho will be back for Jurgen Klopp’s side. The 20-year-old versatile forward suffered a minor problem and has missed the past two games.

But Carvalho was back in full training with the rest of his team-mates and it appears he’ll be available to be included in Liverpool’s squad.

What’s more, Roberto Firmino and Virgil van Dijk both posed for a picture together. The pair were not in team training as they step up their respective returns from injury but appeared in good spirits.

Firmino hasn’t played for Liverpool since the restart of the season after the World Cup. He’s had a calf injury that has kept him out longer than expected.

Van Dijk, meanwhile, has been absent since coming off in the 3-1 loss to Brentford on 2 January.

Last week, Jurgen Klopp said that the duo - along with Diogo Jota - were a couple of weeks away from training. The Liverpool manager will speak to the media tomorrow and is likely to give an injury update.
