Respectively Injured and tested positive to Covid-19, Joël Matip and Sadio Mané returned to the Liverpool training group.
Although many Liverpool first team members are on an international mission with their respective countries, work continues at Melwood for a number of senior players who remained in Merseyside. The remaining includes Thiago Alcantara, Sadio Mané and Joël Matip. The Brazilian and Senegalese were absent during the Reds’ defeat against Aston Villa after being tested positive for COVID-19.
After the heavy defeat (7-2) against Aston Villa, Jürgen Klopp will certainly be happy to have Joël Matip back. Away from for long the field due to an injury, the Cameroonian defender returned to the Liverpool squad. The Indomitable Lion has resumed training for Saturday’s derby against Everton as part of the 5th Premier League gameday.
