Liverpool training pictures: Wijnaldum returns to full training, other potential injury worries feature

Liverpool's Georginio Wijnaldum in action

Adam Lallana and Roberto Firmino appear to have come through Monday's draw against Manchester United well after returning from injury and being substituted late on respectively.

Liverpool were back on the training field on Wednesday as they began to prepare for their next Premier League encounter when they face West Bromwich Albion on Saturday evening. 

The pictures of them in training will see a few welcome sights for the Reds after their 0-0 draw with Manchester United on Monday may have left a few question marks over the fitness of some players.

Georginio Wijnaldum didn't feature at all in Monday's game because of a hip problem was but was back in training for the Reds - meaning he could be battling it out with Emre Can for a place in the starting XI against the Baggies. Adam Lallana, who was only able to take part from the bench in the second half of the game appeared to have no adverse effect to a groin injury he sustained prior to the international break.

There may have been a worry that Roberto Firmino was struggling after he was substituted late on against Jose Mourinho's side but he appears to be fine, though there is no sign of James Milner in the latest round of training pictures. He may have trained but wasn't photographed but he did take a knock to the head prior to his withdrawal on Monday night and Jürgen Klopp may have taken the precaution of letting him sit out this particular session.

No doubt, the Liverpool manager will report something at his pre-match press conference later this week if he could miss out, but his likely replacement was seen taking a full part as Alberto Moreno waits for his chance to make his case again.

Joe Gomez can also be seen training with the group as he returned to full training at the end of last week following a year out because of an ACL injury. His comeback was delayed further because of an Achilles problem as well.
