Liverpool has avoided another injury squall after Harvey Elliott withdrawal early against Lyon, but another midfielder is here to return to training.
Elliott left the field before the half-hour mark of Sundays 3-1 loss to Lyon in Dubai, shaking his head as he did so.
After the game, in response to a question from a reporter, Jurgen Klopp said, “He look fine now but he feels it,” before expressing the hope that “we were lucky” to avoid any serious injuries.
Thoughts endured until this week, when the team resumed training, with Elliott participating in sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday.
On both days, the youngster was involved in ball work, implying that he is fully fit and in controversy for the friendly against AC Milan later this week.
Curtis Jones was not present when the team was put through its paces by the head of fitness and conditioning Andreas Kornmayer and vocal Andy Robertson during rondos.
Johns has not been part of full training since Liverpool arrived in Dubai last week; he is 21 years old and still suffering from the fitness issues that also kept him out of the final game before the world cup. After being involved on Tuesday, Calvin Ramsay was nowhere to be found the next day either.
The right-fitness back may still be being monitored after a rocky start to his Liverpool career, but he could be questionable for Friday.
The training was also attended by Chief Executive Billy Hogan, who has taken over the day-to-day responsibilities of Fenway Sports Group President Mike Gordon during talks over the club is future.
On The Same Day
On the same day, Jordan Henderson visited during his break after the World Cup, the American spoke with Klopp on the sidelines. There is no other remote from Wednesday` Diogo Jota; Arthur, Kaide Gordon, and loanee Marcelo Pittaluga are undergoing rehabilitation in addition to those who have already left the session.
Meanwhile, Luis Diaz, who required surgery to restore damage to his left knees lateral collateral ligament, has returned to Merseyside.
