Things seen during Liverpool’s training session ahead of their Premier League match against Leeds
Liverpool have been put through their paces in training ahead of their match against Arsenal on Sunday.
The Reds welcome the Premier League leaders to Anfield, and Jurgen Klopp is well aware of the significance of the match. Liverpool are now 10 points outside the top four after a 0-0 draw at Chelsea earlier this week, and must win nearly every remaining game to have any chance of qualifying for the Champions League.
Arsenal, on the other hand, is running away with the title and has been in barnstorming form all season.
The Reds shared photos from their session at the AXA Training Centre on Thursday. Mo Salah, on the other hand, was one of three players who could not be found.
The winger was benched for the Chelsea stalemate, which came on the heels of a 4-1 loss to Manchester City. Salah has 23 goals this season for Liverpool.
Meanwhile, Diogo Jota and Joe Gomez were both missing after arriving at Stamford Bridge. It’s been nearly a year since Jota last scored for the Reds, though he’s been hampered by a serious calf injury.
Thiago Alcantara, on the other hand, was back with the rest of his teammates after being sidelined with a hip injury since February. Liverpool will be hoping that the midfielder can at least make the bench.
Luis Diaz’s comeback from a knee injury continues. Klopp has not ruled out the winger playing against Arsenal, but he may not play until Monday, April 17 against Leeds.
Virgil van Dijk was also training after being forced to miss the Chelsea match due to illness.
Naby Keita was photographed running alongside a member of the coaching staff after suffering a muscle injury while on international duty with Guinea.
