Liverpool will take on Tottenham Hotspur in their must-win match in the Premier League on Sunday, to go top of the table and manager Jurgen Klopp has received some good news as defender Joe Gomez nears first-team return as he trains at Melwood ahead of crucial clash with Spurs.
Joe Gomez seems prepared to hand Liverpool a noteworthy lift as they continued looking for the Premier League title as he prepared on Friday. The England defender has been out since the beginning of December in the wake of enduring a broken leg in the win over Burnley.
Intricacies in his recuperation implied he was compelled to experience medical procedure in February yet he is presently prepared to rejoin his colleagues in their Premier League title journey. Liverpool sit top of the table yet will be surpassed by Manchester City in the event that they beat Fulham on Saturday in front of the visit of Tottenham on Sunday.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have seven games left in their offer for a first league title in 29 years and are in the quarter-finals of the Champions League. While Gomez gets ready for his hotly anticipated come back to activity, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is probably going to wait his turn.
At this stage, it appears to be improbable the midfielder will be in Liverpool’s matchday squad in the prompt future as he enters the last phases of his recuperation from ACL damage endured last April. ‘How can I say this? I think one of the biggest mistakes I made was being so excited about having Ox back,’ said Klopp on Friday.
‘Not because it’s not exciting, but because then the spotlight was on the U23 game at Derby, which is pretty rare. I’m pretty sure Ox felt a little bit after the last session with us, and then he played the game and felt a little bit more, and everybody was looking at him.
‘So now we keep him a little bit more in the shadow, he’s in a pretty good moment, he will train, and when he is back and ready to be properly involved again, then I will inform you. Until then I will not speak about him.’
