Fabinho returns to Liverpool training ahead of Atletico clash


Liverpool’s preparations for Wednesday’s meeting with Atletico Madrid have been handed a huge boost by the return to training of midfielder Fabinho.

The 28-year-old has missed Liverpool’s last three matches with a knee injury, with his last appearance coming in the 3-2 victory over Atletico at the Wanda Metropolitano in October.

He could be in for another appearance against Diego Simeone’s side as Fabinho was spotted out in training ahead of the game, with photos showing the Brazilian moving without any extra support.

Fabinho’s return comes at a good time for Liverpool, who just lost Naby Keita to yet another injury during the 2-2 draw with Brighton at the weekend.

He now joins Jordan Henderson, Curtis Jones and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in contention for minutes, with Jurgen Klopp still coping without the injured trio of James Milner, Harvey Elliott and Thiago.
