Andy Robertson, who has been absent since November due to a shoulder dislocation suffered while on international duty with Scotland, is anticipated to make a return after missing the last 20 games.
Trent Alexander-Arnold and Dominik Szoboszlai faced setbacks with knee and hamstring injuries, respectively, in Reds’ matches earlier this month.
However, Jurgen Klopp has now disclosed that all three players are nearing return, raising the possibility of them featuring in the upcoming match against Fulham next Wednesday.
Regarding Alexander-Arnold, who spent the winter break at a Prada fashion show in Milan, Jurgen Klopp humorously addressed the situation when asked about the player. “He can walk… on the catwalk!
“They’re all positive but not ready,” he continued. “They’re all going in the right direction and getting closer and closer and closer, and some of them might be in team training next week.
“But for the Bournemouth game, I don’t expect anyone back.
“I hope that nobody will be out until then. After Bournemouth, maybe for Fulham we will see how the boys do, but they are all close.
“Trent close, Dom close, Robbo close. They are all going in the right direction but for this weekend’s game, no.”
If all three players are absent in the upcoming match against Fulham, they could potentially gain playing time in an FA Cup encounter against Norwich at Anfield over the weekend. This opportunity might pave the way for their return just in time for the visit of Chelsea to Merseyside on January 31.
