Ox should play again this season and Brewster more likely to be back playing in pre-season.

Klopp provides latest on Brewster and Oxlade-Chamberlain

Jürgen Klopp does not expect Rhian Brewster to be available again until pre-season but remains hopeful Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could feature in the current campaign.

Brewster has been sidelined for 12 months and is undergoing rehabilitation at Melwood, where the striker is part of the senior set-up.

The 18-year-old continues to take positive steps in his recovery from a serious ankle injury, though Klopp believes he will come back into contention in 2019-20.

Asked for an update on Brewster’s situation, the manager said on Friday: “[He is] not as far as he wants to be, for sure. But I saw him in the last hour, he was outside training.

“His running now looks much better since he had another little surgery. He is in a good way but that will take time, unfortunately. It’s no problem, he has the time.

“I would say we don’t have to think about him before pre-season.

“But he is in a really good way and the boy is in a good mood on top. We see him here every day, he is a nice fella and that’s all good.

“He is really integrated into the team but so far he couldn’t show that on the pitch. But our opinion about him will not change. We have to wait a little bit longer for him but that’s how life is sometimes.”

Oxlade-Chamberlain’s own recuperation from multiple ligament damage to the knee is on course, with Klopp buoyed by what he has seen from the Liverpool midfielder so far and hoping he will return to the pitch this term.

“He is closer than Rhian. He is on a very good way,” added the boss.

“But last time [I spoke about it] I think I put a bit of pressure on the medical department but when I see him running, moving with the ball and all the stuff – which he is all doing already – it looks really good, promising, close to a return.

“But, in the end, it’s so long out, [since] April against Roma – what a situation.

“It will be fine; it looks completely without any problems in the moment, no swellings anymore. He can really work already on his fitness issues, which he’s had for a long time. I think we will see him this season.”

From Klopp's press conference today:

- Trent, Henderson and Wijnaldum all trained yesterday.
- Lovren not available. Might be back for the Bayern game.
- Gomez surgery went well and he should be back playing in 4-6 weeks.

Gomez, Ox and Brewster are training but not match fit, and the latter two are unlikely to make a meaningful contribution this season, but I think we actually have an injury free squad right now. How often does that happen? Hopefully it will be a quiet end to the year for our medical team!

We all were hoping Ox would made a contribution but doesn't look likely now. Maybe a cameo here and there.

Ox is the only major doubt for today v Chelsea, doubt we'll see him this side of preseason

Lalanna to have late fitness test.

Liverpool U23s played Leicester on Sunday. Ox got 45 mins, Gomez 60, and Brewster 75. Another positive step for all three. Judging by the comments of people who watched the match it sounds like Brewster and Gomez looked sharp but Ox looked way off a first team return.

Surprised but delighted to see Ox get a run out on friday. Honestly though we wouldn't see the fella until the pre season stuff began. Seems he's mended and it's now all about match fitness.

The squad looks to be in good condition with just three players a minor doubt for our next match.

Firmino, Fabinho and Lalanna.
