Jürgen Klopp and Liverpool received good news on the fitness front today as Trent Alexander-Arnold, Gini Wijnaldum, and Jordan Henderson all took part in full training with their teammates ahead of Saturday’s match against Bournemouth.

All three were absent for Monday night’s draw with West Ham, with Alexander-Arnold not ready for a return to action at that stage and the two midfielders late exclusions after picking up training injuries. All three will now be expected available for the next match.

For Alexander-Arnold a start is unlikely given his long layoff, which will mean another start at right back for James Milner, but at least one of Henderson and Wijnaldum—and possibly both—will be expected to come into a midfield that misfired without them.

Dejan Lovren could also be in line to return after he too missed the match on Monday, and in a best case scenario that would leave Klopp without just Joe Gomez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain—neither of whom is expected back imminently.

For both, a return following Liverpool’s second Champions League Round of 16 leg against Bayern Munich in March would represent the best case scenario.
