Alisson Becker, Diogo Jota and Fabinho have all trained ahead of Liverpool’s Premier League clash with Chelsea on Wednesday evening.

The goalkeeper was absent for Liverpool’s 2-0 win over Sheffield United on Sunday evening following the death of his father, Jose Becker, in Brazil last week.

Jota, meanwhile, has been sidelined since he suffered a knee injury during the Champions League tie against Midtjylland on December 9.

The Portuguese forward has recovered from his knee problem but missed the victory over Sheffield United at the weekend due to illness.

Fabinho had trained with Liverpool’s squad last week having been out of the side through injury since the 4-1 defeat at home to Manchester City on February 7.

At the weekend, Jurgen Klopp revealed that Fabinho was closing in on a return and the Brazilian midfielder could now be available for Liverpool’s clash with Chelsea at Anfield.

Naby Keita, Ben Davies, who is yet to make his debut for Liverpool, and James Milner were also part of Tuesday’s training session.

‘Alisson and Fabinho, I’m pretty sure [will be available for the match against Chelsea],’ Klopp said after Liverpool’s win over Sheffield United.

‘With Diogo, he was with us in the hotel, but he got sick overnight and we had to send him home. It depends how quick he will recover, obviously.
