Keita, Davies and Origi back in Liverpool training ahead of Leipzig clash

Liverpool were handed a triple fitness boost heading into their Champions League last-16 first leg against RB Leipzig on Tuesday, as Naby Keita, Ben Davies and Divock Origi were all back in training this morning having missed Saturday’s defeat at Leicester.

Davies, 25, is still yet to make his inaugural Liverpool appearance following his deadline-day signing from Preston North End earlier this month.

The Englishman missed the trip to the King Power Stadium as a result of a ‘little knock’, per Liverpool’s official website.

Meanwhile, Origi, 25, also wasn’t in Jurgen Klopp’s squad at the weekend after the Belgian striker was ruled out with a hamstring problem.

Naby Keita, too, was back smiling in Kirkby with the Guinean talisman previously nursing an ankle injury.

The 25-year-old midfielder has been out of action since December 19, his last appearance being the 7-0 pre-Christmas victory against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

However, all three players were back in action for Liverpool’s Monday morning training centre at the club’s AXA Training Centre, which was streamed live on Twitter.

The returning trio appeared in good spirits as the Reds finalise preparations for their clash with Julian Nagelsmann and Leipzig tomorrow evening.

Unfortunately, there was no sign of Fabinho, with the Brazilian international set to miss out again as a result of a muscle problem.

The game itself is scheduled to be played in Budapest, Hungary, after Liverpool were banned from travelling to Germany due to COVID-19 restrictions.

The game will now take place at Budapest’s Puskas Arena on the same date of 16 February (20:00 GMT), while the second leg is due to be played at Anfield on March 10.
