Joe Gomez is back in training for Liverpool, manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed.

Gomez came through a session yesterday morning and Liverpool are encouraged by his progress.

 

The England international played a key role for the Reds in the first half of the season before picking up an injury.

Now he is returning at a crucial time, with Liverpool having just seven Premier League games left, and into the Champions League quarter finals.

Gomez  struck up a superb partnership with Virgil van Dijk in the first half of the season.

Liverpool are glad to have him back, but aren't going to rush him. Don't expect to see him start against Tottenham this weekend.
