Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has returned to full training to allow Liverpool to recover from injuries in a timely manner.
The midfielder has not played all season since suffering a knee injury in the pre-season but is now working with the core group at the club’s XA training center.
J যাওয়ারrgen Klopp and his coaches were able to take part in an open session at the Oxlade-Chamberlain, leaving the players in front of their pace before the Champions League left for Midtzland on Wednesday night.
The former Arsenal star is expected to return to the game soon, but the Premier League champions could return to the Oxlade-Chamberlain debate on Sunday afternoon as they travel to Fulham.
This represents some timely news for Klopp, who has seen his numbers eroded by a crippling trauma crisis in recent weeks.
Liverpool went into action against Ajax last week without nine first-team stars, including Thiago Alcantara, Jordan Shakiri, James Milner and Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Navi Keita and Trent Alexander-Arnold were re-elected after a second-half cameo against the Wolves on Sunday, but Alison Baker was left out.
Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez are long-term absent because they could both recover from knee surgery but are close to returning to the Oxlade-Chamberlain Liverpool squad.
Liverpool, meanwhile, have been left out of the squad despite not being in the match-day squad against Divoz Oriji Wolves.

Orizi was part of the pack in open training on Tuesday and Klopp explained the reason behind the Belgium international’s omission on Sunday evening.
“Dave wasn’t injured and we don’t have a lot of players [fit] “Our attacking options in these areas are better than in other areas, so I can’t just bring three strikers or a very aggressive player into the squad when everything can happen across the entire pitch,” Klopp said.
“Div’s condition is good but he was not in the Premier League last time.”
Roberto Firmino was part of the team that trained in curfew and received attention from a club physio for issuing on the right wing.
The Brazilian striker did not appear in pain when his boot was removed before being checked up by a member of the medical department.
However, Liverpool have already promised a place in the last 16 of the Champions League, and even the slightest warning will see Firmino lose to Midfield.
Meanwhile, Leighton Clarkson, Rice Williams, Jack Kane and Billy Koumeti also all trained with the senior pack and are expected to join Denmark’s match-day squad.
Williams was a regular on the Liverpool defense in the Champions League this season, but the choice of Clarkson, Cuomio and Kane could be their senior European debut at some point on Wednesday.
