Jon Flanagan is looking to impress Jurgen Klopp with his fitness ahead of Liverpool's League Cup final
Jon Flanagan has been working on his fitness ahead of Liverpool’s League Cup final at Wembley.
The England international made his return to competitive action in Liverpool’s 3-0 win against Exeter City in January after almost 18 months sidelined with a knee injury.
Flanagan started Liverpool’s League Cup semi-final second leg against Stoke City before the right-back was replaced ahead of the penalty shootout.
The 23-year-old has struggled to break into Jurgen Klopp’s side since the semi-final clash in late January as Nathaniel Clyne and Alberto Moreno continue to occupy the full-back spots.
However, the Liverpool-born defender has been working hard on his fitness after he posted a snap following a session on Saturday morning.
Flanagan wrote: “Good morning session with @Jonnynaylorfitness 💪”
Liverpool are hoping to win the League Cup for a record ninth time at Wembley on Sunday afternoon.
The Reds were 4-1 winners against Sunday’s opponents Manchester City in the Premier League earlier this season.
