Alisson available for selection again and Matip back in Liverpool training
So some more good news for Reds fans today, as it was revealed that two of our defensive stalwarts, Alisson Becker and Joel Matip, are back in training.
It had been suggest by the Liverpool Echo on Monday that Alisson would be available on Sunday and the news that he is fully training with the squad almost 6 days before the match is a good sign.
But the news about Matip is an even greater boost, despite Dejan Lovren deputising ably against Leicester City last weekend.
The big centre back has been in imperious form for near enough the entirety of his time alongside Virgil Van Dijk since stepping in for Joe Gomez in late 2018.
It remains to be seen whether either, or both, of them will start on Sunday but Jurgen Klopp will be keen to ensure that both players are fully prepared before blooding them again.
