Liverpool train ahead of derby with Everton.

Liverpool striker Divock Origi was back in first team training ahead of Wednesday night's Merseyside derby with Everton.

Origi was substituted off as a precaution during the weekend's 2-1 win away to Bournemouth, but he has now been cleared to face the Toffees if selected.

He missed Monday's training session due to the back injury suffered, the club website reported, but was back with his teammates on Tuesday.

Also involved in the training session was Joao Teixeira, the mercurially talented attacking midfielder who has promised much, but been unable to secure a regular starting spot for the club.

Teixeira has played just three minutes in the Premier League under Jurgen Klopp, also featuring briefly against Augsburg in the Europa League and in the FA Cup against West Ham.

Whether he will be selected in the squad for the derby is unclear, but he should retain hope of another run out between now and the end of the season in the league with Jurgen Klopp rotating his side. Certainly, he looked in positive mood.
