Mohamed Salah missing, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain boost and what we learned from the Liverpool training


The days are approaching when Liverpool will resume his quest for glory in the Premier League.After a three-month suspension, the Reds will be back in action on Sunday against their local rivals Everton in the next episode of the derby of Merseyside.

In the current state of things, the team of Jurgen Klopp is in need of a maximum of six points to ensure the league title is heading to Anfield for the first time since 1990.

While the times of the league approaching, the players of Liverpool have stepped up their preparations for the big match on Sunday.

Here’s what we learned from today’s session at Melwood…

Trains Robertson

As a precaution, Andy Robertson missed the friendly match last week at Anfield against Blackburn.

But the skipper of the scottish has been photographed at Melwood in the process of chatting with Klopp and was part of the training session to complete group before the showdown on Sunday at Goodison Park.

A boost for the Reds, that’s for sure.

No Salah

A player who was not represented at Melwood was Mohamed Salah, who has also missed the friendly match Blackburn as a precaution.

Although it is not clear if the Egyptian was involved in a full training or was occupied by a session inside the building.

One thing is for sure, Klopp hopes that the player 28-year-old is fit and ready to face Everton this weekend.

Ox seems ready

Another boost for the Reds, this time in the form of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The English international struck slightly to the ankle during the hammering 6-0 against Blackburn last week, with Klopp with some tackling of the Rovers.

But Ox was represented in the process to participate in a full training with the rest of the team of the Reds, and seems to be recovering from the slight blow he has felt in the last week.

Time for Minamino

With Salah not represented at the workout, Klopp will look to use his strong team to adapt if the attacker is not available to face Everton.

A player who Klopp has been photographed, most talked about as Takumi Minamino, who is still at the beginning of his career at Anfield.

Following his move in January to Red Bull Salzburg, the international japanese just roles of a party to this day.

But now that the Premier League resumes, Klopp could make a call for Minamino to play a more important role in the break-in, starting perhaps with the trip to Goodison on Sunday.

Klopp impressed by the young people

Moving away from the discourse on the wounds, and Klopp has also been photographed watching a mini training session involving the young Reds.

Tastes like Harvey Elliott, Ki-Jana Hoever, Sepp van den Berg, Yasser Larouci, Paul Glatzel and Neco Williams have all participated in the session Melwood on Wednesday.

The young starlets should play a key role for the Reds at the resumption of the season, and one of them could have a role to play against Everton this weekend?
