Liverpool’s Premier League title push is getting reinforcements.

Joe Gomez is back in training for Jurgen Klopp’s men, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is close to heading back to training following a setback due to soreness.

Gomez has played a little over 1000 Premier League minutes this year, a further 400 coming in the Champions League. The Reds have only lost three of his starts, all in the UCL, and only scored one goal in those contests.

As for Oxlade-Chamberlain, he will fill an underserved need for Liverpool as a playmaking midfielder.

“I spoke to him a second ago; Ox is positive, we are all positive,” Klopp said. “It was a little setback, it was not more, but it was a setback. That’s how it is.”

Klopp said Mohamed Salah has benefited from the break afforded by skipping Egypt matches to rest.

“Now let’s go.”
