Liverpool should have Thiago Alcântara and Sadio Mané available for selection for this Saturday’s clash with Everton at Goodison Park.
Jürgen Klopp may also be able to bring Jordan Henderson back into the starting lineup but Naby Keïta will miss out after an initial positive test while on international duty in recent days.
Keïta tested positive while with the Guinea national team during this international break. As of Monday evening, he was in isolation and awaiting the results of a second COVID-19 test.
Sadio Mane and Thiago will play in Merseyside derby after returning to training today, following their Covid-positive period of quarantine.

Liverpool will be looking to get back to winning ways this weekend after their 7-2 hammering at Aston Villa last time out. However, Everton have won all four of their league games this season and currently sit top of the table under Carlo Ancelotti’s guidance.
The Reds will need their best possible team to put it up to The Toffees on Saturday. Thankfully, both Thiago and Mané returned to training at Melwood this week and also tested negative for COVID-19.
With Henderson and Thiago back, as well as Gini Wijnaldum and Fabinho also fit, Liverpool’s midfield trio will come from those four.
Mané’s return also means the front three will be back to full strength too.
