Liverpool receives triple injury boost

Liverpool receives triple injury boost ahead of crucial Tottenham test

March 26, 2019 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The Reds will have three more key players possibly returning for the upcoming Premier League encounter with Spurs.

Liverpool has been handed a huge injury boost with three key players returning to training ahead of Sunday's clash with Tottenham Hotspur. Joe Gomes, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as well as Trent Alexander-Arnold are all nearing full fitness ahead of the Matchday 32 encounter at Anfield.

According to the Reds' official website, head coach Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Joe Gomez has trained alongside his teammates after spending more than three months treating a leg fracture he sustained at Burnley in December last year.

"It is nice – Joe is not injured anymore and nearly fit," Klopp said. "He will not be in the afternoon training session because he has to do something else – he has to work on his endurance, that's how it is and how the boys always have to do it, like Ox had to do it when he was finally back in training.

"After a long time, I think Joe was out for 15 weeks, that is long, so he needs to now create the basis again for the rest of the season."

Similarly, Klopp has revealed that Oxlade Chamberlain has made significant progress in recovering from a muscle problem. The Englishman is expected to feature in his side's full training session next week.

"I spoke to him a second ago; Ox is positive, we are all positive," he said.

"It was a little setback, it was not more, but it was a setback. That's how it is.

"You don't want to be overly sensitive after a period like this because they train a lot – training is always like this, it's like stress for the body. You feel something, but you don't want to mention everything because it [can be] DOMS [delayed onset muscle soreness].

"It was the case with him, it was a little bit more than DOMS, but not really [serious]. We are careful of course, he is working, he is doing a lot and I think will be in training in a week again. Then he will be fine."

Meanwhile, Trent Alexander-Arnold who also withdrew from the England squad during the international break has made significant progress in recovering from a back injury.

"Trent still feels his back. We are not 100 percent sure, so we have to watch him. Trent wants to [be] 100 percent, but we have to see. Klopp, however, remains unsure whether the full back will be ready for Sunday's meeting with Spurs.

"It is a strange one, it's not an obvious injury that you can say something is broke or whatever, it's just a bit annoying actually that he cannot feel really free," Klopp added.

"For him, it was really important that he could do the rehab and not being in normal training all the time.

"Hopefully [between] tomorrow and Thursday he can be back in full training and then it should be fine."
