Curtis Jones returns to Liverpool training

Following a string of injuries to a midfield that had lost one of its ever-present members from the past five years, Liverpool fans could be forgiven for fearing a repeat of last year’s injury crisis, when a backline that had been deemed light ahead of the season was decimated by season-ending injuries, causing the Reds to scramble for solutions.

Harvey Elliott, Thiago, Naby Keïta, James Milner, Fabinho, Jordan Henderson and Curtis Jones have all missed time with a variety of injuries this season, but one by one, with the exception of Elliott who was back on the pitch doing cuts and kicking a ball yesterday, but still has some way to go until he’s eligible to play they have all come back without the team suffering disastrous results in their absence, with Jones the latest returnee.

The 20-year old suffered a scratch to the eye back in early November and has missed a total of nine games as he’s waited for it to heal, but was back on the training pitch tonight and having stayed fit through his absence is expected to be available for selection against Newcastle on Thursday.

As Liverpool reaches the midpoint of their intense 43-day run of 13 matches, the availability of as much midfield talent as possible will be of critical importance to Jürgen Klopp and could be a decisive factor when all the points are tallied up at the end of the season.
