Joe Gomez

Jurgen Klopp is hopeful that Joe Gomez and Naby Keita will be able to return to action next week for Liverpool.

Both players have been sidelined with calf and thigh injuries, but were spotted back in team training with the Reds following Wednesday’s victory over Everton.

The trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers comes too soon for Gomez and Keita, but Klopp has hinted that the pair could face AC Milan in midweek.

Speaking to reporters at his pre-game press conference, Klopp said: “[They were involved in] big parts. It was really nice to see. We didn’t let them do the full session because medical told us not to do that, but they looked brilliant.

“They now use the next two or three days to do the stuff they have to while being part of team training – and then I think from Sunday on, if nothing happens between now and then, they should be in contention again.”

While Gomez and Keita are on the verge of returning, the Reds are still without long-term injury victims Harvey Elliott, Roberto Firmino, and Curtis Jones.
