Mario Balotelli and Philippe Coutinho looked in good spirits as Liverpool trained ahead of Sunday’s clash with Manchester United at Old Trafford.

The Italy international has not featured for the Reds since 8 November due to a groin injury but could be involved against the Red Devils at Old Trafford.

Adam Lallana, meanwhile, has also been passed fit despite suffering broken ribs during the recent victory over Leicester City.

Asked about Balotelli’s fitness on Friday, manager Brendan Rodgers said: “We’ve still got a bit of time, so we’ll see what his fitness is like.

“He’s been out for a little while now, but in the last couple of days he’s looked good in training.

“We’ll give him every chance to see if he can come into the squad.”

Here are some of the best pictures from Friday’s training session at Melwood.
