Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino resumed full training on Thursday evening with his teammates for the first time since the start of November. 

Firmino picked up a hamstring injury during Liverpool’s 2-0 victory over Atletico Madrid on the 3rd of November in a Champions League tie. The Brazilian was replaced by Divock Origi in the 78th minute with Jurgen Klopp describing the injury as ‘not good.’

Klopp had warned that the Brazilian could be on the sidelines for a lengthy period but a month later, the forward is back to full training handing the Reds a massive boost with the Africa Cup of Nations set to kick off in January.

Despite Firmino resuming training, the 30-year-old is still a little bit away from returning to action.

Klopp’s men will be up against Aston Villa on Saturday at Anfield in a Premier League encounter.
