Liverpool’s head of performance Glen Driscoll has discussed potential return dates for currently injured players with the club’s official website.
Defensive foursome Glen Johnson, Daniel Agger, Jose Enrique and Mamadou Sakho are all unavailable, as is Brazilian holding midfielder Lucas.
Here’s the updates on the fitness of the five first-teamers:
Daniel Agger & Glen Johnson:
“Daniel Agger and Glen Johnson came through training very well yesterday and today, which is good news.
It’s just a matter of monitoring their conditioning in terms of their availability for games, and it leaves us with just three injuries.”
“Mamadou Sakho actually had a tear in his tendon and not the muscle of the hamstring as initially reported. For a whole host of reasons tendons take longer to heal, but he is working hard and progressing.”
“Lucas Leiva was due to be in a brace for six weeks, according to specialists’ opinion, but yesterday he was outside running just over three weeks in, which is fantastic and shows just how ahead of schedule he is.
“Jose Enrique also had a complex knee issue and following surgery is in the process of achieving his final strength gains before he can return to training.”
Driscoll added: “Without providing specific dates I would hope that by the end of the month we should start to get the likes of Jose, Lucas and Sakho back.
