Klopp expecting Gomez to return in March
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed centre-back Joe Gomez could return to action after the upcoming international break.
The England international has not played since December after suffering a lower leg fracture during the 3-1 win over Burnley.
After a few weeks of rehabilitation, the Reds decided to send Gomez for surgery and he continues to recover in training.
Midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is also on his way back from injury but Klopp admits they are still being cautious with the former Arsenal man.
He told the club's official website: "I think after the international break Joe should be OK. If nobody gets injured before then we’ll have a proper choice. Joe is doing his rehab and looks good, big steps, outside running and all these things.
"Ox is doing 70 per cent of team training. He trains full but not as much as the others. Then he leaves a bit early to do something else and the things he needs.
"Everyone is always looking for a reaction but nothing has happened yet. We have to prepare him for his entire career, not just one particular game. When he’s in training it looks very nice."
