Liverpool winger Sadio Mane has returned to training ahead of this weekend’s huge game against Spurs this weekend.
Jurgen Klopp is also buoyed by Mamadou Sakho joining the session on Monday with the Reds first preparing for the EFL Cup tie with Burton Albion on Tuesday.
After the calamitous loss to Burnley last weekend and conceding three times in their win over Arsenal at the Emirates, Liverpool will also be pleased to see Sakho training once more.The £35million winger – who has recovered from a shoulder complaint – was sensational on debut against the Gunners and Klopp will hope to fast track the Senegalese into the staring line-up.
Sakho’s re-emergence at the back could boost Klopp too, as the German aims to tighten things up after Jamie Carragher criticised the Reds’ defence.Klopp is under pressure to turn his side’s fortunes around immediately after Sam Vokes and Andre Gray stunned the Reds at Turf Moor.
The Reds chief snapped at reporters in his pre-match press conference after being pushed on the latest surrounding transfer activity.With the EFL Cup a realistic chance of silverware and Liverpool aiming to replicate Spurs’ rise last term, it could prove to be a critical week for the Reds, even at this premature stage of the season.
