Diogo Jota and Naby Keita still absent as Liverpool return to training

Liverpool have provided a new set of training photos from Wednesday’s session as the team prepare for this weekend’s clash with Leicester City.

The session was notable for the continued absence of Liverpool duo Diogo Jota and Naby Keita, who are both still yet to return to full training despite being pictured at the AXA Training Centre last week.

Jota, 24, has been out since December 9 following a long-term knee injury. Meanwhile, Keita who turns 26 today, hasn’t played since the 7-0 win against Crystal Palace following a ankle problem.

The Athletic reported recently that both players were close to making their long-awaited returns to the first-team set-up, but it seems the pair aren’t quite ready just yet.

Liverpool were back at Kirkby ahead of Saturday’s trip to the King Power Stadium, with the team determined to return to winning ways following back-to-back league defeats to Brighton and Manchester City.
