Liverpool trio Alisson, Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain and Adam Lallana have been training during international week despite Jurgen Klopp giving them the week off.
As per ESPN, Klopp gave all of his players who were not on international duty the week off but all three stars have forgone that to do some extra work.
The report says that Alisson is still in line to make his Reds return against Manchester United next time out, while adding that English midfielders Chamberlain and Lallana have also been told they’ll get more games in the coming weeks.
Alisson has apparently been doing technical work with goalkeeping coach John Achterberg as well as working on his fitness in the gym with fitness coach Dave Rydings.
TBR’s View – Liverpool stars showing the attitude Klopp demands
For struggling clubs, getting players to do the right things can be a struggle, but Jurgen Klopp has built a winning team with a mentality to match.
The three players know how well the team has been doing without them and that means that they have to strain every sinew to get back in.
Alisson will get in when fit, but Adrian has been doing so well that he won’t need to be rushed back.
Meanwhile, Chamberlain and Lallana know the levels of fitness and energy needed to slot into Klopp’s midfield, while the former may also be disappointed to have been dropped out of Gareth Southgate’s England squad.
