Mo Salah trains on his own, as Liverpool quartet return

Joel Matip and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have rejoined Liverpool training ahead of Sunday’s trip to Manchester United.

Centre-back Joel Matip, who had missed the last two games with injury, looks set to be thrown straight back into the side at Old Trafford after Dejan Lovren and Joe Gomez deputised.

Matip picked up the knock the 1-0 win at Sheffield United at the end of September and missed the wins over Salzburg and Leicester.

England man Gomez played in the 4-3 win over Salzburg, but he was far from convincing and looked rusty as he allowed Erling Haland score. The 22-year-old has been away with England but has not had any game time against the Czech Republic and Bulgaria.

Lovren meanwhile has played twice over the international break and Jurgen Klopp will unlikely ask the 30-year-old to play three times in 10 days.

Midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who sat out the win over Leicester, has also returned to the fold, while Alisson Becker also trained with Liverpool’s goalkeepers.

Mohamed Salah also looks set to be fit to face Man Utd after taking a heavy knock against Leicester.




The Egypt forward trained separately from the rest of the squad on Tuesday, but he looks primed to be ready to take on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men.

It leaves Klopp with just Xherdan Shaqiri as the only senior members of the squad missing from training.

Youngsters Herbie Kane and Yasser Larouci also join in training with Klopp’s first team squad.
