Jürgen Klopp has confirmed Trent Alexander-Arnold and Alisson Becker have made a return to full training.

The pair were recently sidelined after testing positive for COVID-19, but could now come into contention for Liverpool's Carabao Cup semi-final first leg with Arsenal on Thursday. 

However, Thiago Alcantara and Divock Origi will miss the Anfield tie as they remain ruled out through injury. 

Speaking at his pre-match press conference on Wednesday, Klopp said: "Trent and Ali trained yesterday. Div and Thiago not. That's it pretty much. 

"Like always in these times, all players, apart from the injured ones or in Africa playing [the] Africa Cup of Nations, who test negative should be available.

"Harvey Elliott looks really promising, out on the pitch – didn't train with the team yet but I don't think we are too far away from team training. What he's doing in the moment looks really good. 

"Robbo got a little knock in the Shrewsbury game but is fine. I'm not sure if I forgot anybody but the rest are available."
