Club football has come to an halt as players have gone on a International break to represent their countries. The UEFA Nations League and Euro qualifications in Europe and the World Cup 2022 qualifiers in South America have been a treat to our eyes over the past two weeks.
On the other hand several footballers are time and again testing positive for COVID – 19. From Zlatan to Ronaldo, COVID – 19 has affected many star players. However the impressive fitness of these players have helped them recover soon than the others. Liverpool stars Mane and Thiago are the recent players who have returned back to training after their recovery.
Liverpool players return ahead of the Merseyside derby
Mane and Thiago who went into self isolation after testing positive for COVID – 19 have returned to training along with Matip who has recovered from a muscle injury. Liverpool are now in all sorts of trouble after being thrashed 7 – 2 by Aston Villa. They will now face Everton who are in red hot form.
The Toffees have played four and won all the four and are now at the top of the table. Ancelotti’s men will hope to carry forward the same form and grab a victory over Klopp’s men. But we cannot write off Liverpool who have made some impressive comebacks in the past. Klopp would also be happy with Mane, Thiago and Matip who are making a comeback at the perfect time which he would have expected.
However Klopp will be without the services of Naby Keita who tested positive for corona virus while he was with Guinea. Keita is waiting for the results of his second test which if returned positive will result in him missing the most important UCL tie with Ajax too.
