Liverpool will welcome Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain back to the squad for the Premier League clash with Burnley on Wednesday night.
The midfielder, who was unavailable due to illness at Manchester United and West Bromwich Albion last week due to illness, has now returned to team training in time for the trip to Turf Moor.
James Milner could against the Clarets compete, but Naby Keita is excluded.
“Millie will train today, but is that enough to be there tomorrow? I’ll see, “said Jürgen Klopp at his press conference before the game on Tuesday.
” Ox was sick, [well] yes, Ox is back. Naby was not part of the team training yet, so this will surely not be enough until tomorrow. Ox was in team training so he’s back. “
Diogo Jota is sidelined at Old Trafford with a foot injury, although the Portuguese international has a chance to play against Crystal Palace on Sunday.
Initial assessments had indicated that Jota would be out for the remainder of the season , but further scans gave a more positive diagnosis.
“When the swelling subsided, we took another picture and it looked better than the first scan. You could see it better with the CT [scan], “said Klopp.
” So there’s a tiny chance for him for the weekend, but it depends on how things get better now. We have to see that.
“It is obviously good news for Portugal and for Diogo itself, as the euros are in no danger at all. That’s good, but if it’s good enough for us, we’ll see. “
Sean Dyche offered an update on Burnley’s injury situation during his press conference on Tuesday.
The Clarets boss said:” Nick Pope is Touch and Go, Dale Stephens and Phil Bardsley have both had and will be surgeries miss, and Kevin Long and Robbie Brady are both still unavailable. “
