Diogo Jota is expected to resume full training with Liverpool this week after more than two months out with a knee injury.

The Portugal international was in potent form before sustaining the injury in the Champions League dead-rubber against FC Midtjylland on 9 December.

The Premier League champions, meanwhile, are also waiting to discover where the Champions League last-16 second leg against RB Leipzig will be held.

Jota, who had scored nine goals in 17 appearances for Liverpool after his £41m arrival from Wolves, hopes to receive the all-clear to rejoin team training on Wednesday.

Anfield appears unlikely because of the quarantine restrictions that would affect Leipzig and, while venues in the Netherlands and Belgium are under consideration, a return to Budapest – where Liverpool won the first leg 2-0 last week – remains a possibility.

Liverpool are waiting to discover the full extent of the groin injury that forced Jordan Henderson off against Everton but fear the captain faces an extended time out of action.

His absence has been sorely felt with Liverpool struggling for goals and facing a fight to finish in the top four after the derby defeat by Everton on Saturday, their fourth home league defeat in succession.
