Liverpool’s defensive options bolstered ahead of Wolves showdown

Liverpool's backline has been boosted by the return to full fitness of Dejan Lovren ahead of their clash against Wolves on Thursday night. 

The Croatia international hasn’t featured for the Merseyside club since their Champions League fixture against RB Salzburg on December 10, after sustaining a knock.

He has however shaken off the injury and joined his teammates in full training earlier in the week.

He might not be in line for a start at Wolves, but his return boosts Jurgen Klopp's men ahead of a busy schedule that will include the Champions League.

He joins Joel Matip and Fabinho who returned to full training last week following various injuries that kept hem out for weeks.

“Dejan trained now since the start of the week, Monday,” Klopp said. “Millie is not in team training, Naby is not in team training and Shaq is not in team training.

“They are all back soon.”

Klopp's charges travel to Molineux looking to extend their lead at the top of the table and open the gap between them and defending champions Manchester City. 

The Reds won the reverse fixture 1-0 at Anfield but will be expecting a tight match against Nuno Espírito's men, who are seventh on the log.
