Liverpool duo Fabinho and Joel Matip returned to full training on Wednesday ahead of the Super Sunday clash with Manchester United.
Midfielder Fabinho has been out since an ankle injury forced him off in the 1-1 draw with Napoli on November 27, while centre-back Matip has not played since Liverpool last met Manchester United on October 20 when he suffered a recurrence of the knee injury he first picked up in the win at Sheffield United.
Dejan Lovren is also recovering well from his hamstring injury but the defender has not returned to full training yet.
Nevertheless, his comeback is not too far away which has enabled Red boss Jurgen Klopp to send Nathaniel Phillips back on loan to Stuttgart after he was recalled for the Merseyside derby in the FA Cup and to provide cover from the bench against Tottenham.
It means Klopp is now close to having his four main centre-backs fully fit.
