Liverpool boost as Alisson, Diogo Jota AND Fabinho all train ahead of Chelsea clash as Jurgen Klopp's injury woes ease

JURGEN KLOPP has been handed a welcome boost with Alisson, Diogo Jota and Fabinho all returning to training.

Liverpool have been decimated with injuries throughout the campaign which has contributed to their disastrous title defence.

Goalkeeper Alisson was left out of the 2-0 win over Sheffield United for personal reasons.

The Brazilian's father tragically died aged 57 last week after his body was found in a lake.

The No1 returned to training this week and could return between the sticks as the Reds host Chelsea on Thursday night.

Winger Jota has been sidelined since picking up a knee injury in the Champions League against Midtjylland on December 9.

The £41million summer signing was in terrific form with nine goals in 15 appearances before injury struck.

And Fabinho looks set to face Thomas Tuchel's side after recovering from a muscle injury picked up against Man City on February 7.

Boss Klopp admitted all three are in contention to face Chelsea but revealed Jota is struggling with illness.

He said: "Alisson and Fabinho, I’m pretty sure [will be available for the match against Chelsea]


"With Diogo, he was with us in the hotel, but he got sick overnight and we had to send him home. It depends how quick he will recover, obviously.

"He was in the squad and as I said before, he trained with the team and it all looked really good but unfortunately he got sick overnight.

"I think he will be available, but I don’t know."

Liverpool are still dealing with a huge list of players on the treatment table including Jordan Henderson, Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez.

Joel Matip is also out until the end of season while Caoimhin Kelleher is struggling with a knock.
