Liverpool defender Joe Gomez is set to return to training next week in what is a major boost for manager Jurgen Klopp.

The 21-year-old’s development was rewarded with a new long-term contract last month, seeing him remain at Anfield until at least 2024.

The Reds boss has seen his defensive options limited in recent weeks, with Gomez joining fellow centre-backs Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip on the treatment table.

Whilst Matip has now returned, Liverpool were handed a further blow after Trent Alexander-Arnold was confirmed to be ruled out for up to a month with a knee injury, further limiting Klopp’s defensive choices.

Klopp could also shift Fabinho to right-back, whilst James Milner is another option should he be needed.

Recent reports suggested that Gomez would be out of action until at least the start of February, however the centre-back is now set to make a return to training next week.

Gomez’s return will be a big boost for Klopp, who has been forced to field Brazilian midfielder Fabinho at the heart of defence in the Reds’ last two fixtures.
