Liverpool player James Milner has returned to feature for his side in the second game of the season in the Premier League game against Burnley on Saturday.
The midfielder is likely to feature in the left back position when he returns to a beefed up Reds squad, who are keen on fighting for the trophy this season. He was pictured in the training session with his team mates at Melwood, with coach Jurgen Klopp leading the session.
The training session had in attendance the full squad, with Mamadou Sakho and Joe Gomez missing due to injury. Danny Ings was pictured in good condition after his goal in the under 23 team. Daniel Sturridge was doing fitness work ahead of the game against the newly promoted side.
Burnely would be hosting the team with the hope of upturning their fate after losing their last game to Swansea City. On the other hand, the Merseyside club will be looking at their second successive win after their 4-3 pushover of Arsenal.
With no distraction in Europe, Liverpool will want to continue their strong start in the new season. Sadio Mane was impressive in his debut Premier League debut for Liverpool, scoring a stunner in the 63rd minute. There are reports that he picked up a little injury in the midweek training this week and might not make the game. However, it was largely a Philippe Coutinho show, as he got a brace and largely dictated the pace of the encounter. Liverpool have options in Sturridge and Divock Origi in place of Mane if he doesn’t return for the game poised for Turf Moor.
As Liverpool trade tackles with Burnley, Arsenal would be facing last season’s champions Leicester City. The Pep Guardiola-led side will face Stoke and Chelsea will be visitors when they meet Watford.
