Liverpool handed double injury boost ahead of Carrow Road trip

Liverpool have been boosted by the return of Sadio Mane and James Milner ahead of their trip to Carrow Road to face Norwich on Saturday evening. 

The runaway leaders are having a superb campaign, and are favorites to pick maximum points against bottom-placed Norwich

The duo have been out nursing muscle injuries they sustained in January, but joined the rest of the squad at Melwood this week and will be in line for a return to the starting lineup. 

“Of course they are in contention, it’s clear," said Jurgen Klopp on Friday in his pre-match conference.

“When Millie and Sadio are back, you start thinking immediately. That’s how it is.

“It looks like – and I hope it stays like this – apart from Shaqiri, Clyne, and Glatzel, all players are in training.

“We have some good options and hopefully it stays like this, that would be really great for the decisive part of the season now.

“It’s good news. They both trained from Monday – and they both trained through the last week anyway – so they are in contention.”

Only Xherdan Shaqiri, Nathaniel Clyne and Paul Glatzel are currently sidelined from Klopp's squad, which gives him pleasure ahead of a busy run. 

The Reds are not at risk of losing grip of the English Premier League title as they enjoy a healthy lead, with their attention now expected to shift to the defense os their European crown.
