Gallery: Thiago, Mane and Matip return to training as Reds prep for derby – Liverpool FC

Although many of Liverpool’s first team are away on international duty with their respective countries, work is continuing at Melwood for a number of senior players who’ve remained on Merseyside – including Thiago Alcantara, Sadio Mane and Joel Matip.

Thiago and Mane missed the Reds’ defeat at Aston Villa having tested positive for COVID-19, but are back on the training pitch ahead of this Saturday’s trip to Goodison Park to face Everton.

Matip was with his teammates, too, as the centre-back continues his recovery from injury having been limited to one appearance so far this season.

Joining them in Tuesday afternoon’s session were the likes of Mohamed Salah and James Milner as a workout was overseen by Jürgen Klopp and his backroom team.
