Liverpool and England defender Joe Gomez has returned to training following more than three months out of action after breaking his leg.

“Joe was out for 15 weeks. Thats long, so he needs to now create the basis again for the rest of the season.”

Klopp also said midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, yet to feature this season because of a cruciate knee ligament injury sustained last April, could return to training soon.

“Were careful of course,” added the German. “He is working, he is doing a lot and I think will be in training in a week again. Then he will be fine.”

Liverpool are next in action on Sunday when they host Tottenham. They then visit Southampton on 5 April before the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final against Porto on 9 April at Anfield.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed Joe Gomez has returned to training after a three-and-a-half month absence.

Gomez has not featured for Liverpool since suffering a lower-leg fracture during a Premier League match against Burnley on December 5.

Gomez returned to training at Melwood on Tuesday but Klopp says the 21-year-old will need to improve his fitness before being considered for selection.
