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.
