Adam Lallana and Martin Skrtel are in high spirits as Liverpool's squad train ahead of League Cup final
Adam Lallana and Martin Skrtel were all smiles as Jurgen Klopp put his Liverpool squad through their paces ahead of Sunday’s League Cup final.
Lallana and Skrtel didn’t feature in Klopp’s side on Thursday night as the Reds secured a 1-0 victory over Augsburg in the second leg of their Europa League last-16 clash.
The five-time European champions made the vital breakthrough in the fifth minute after James Milner’s emphatic penalty in front of the away end.
Liverpool were rewarded for their 1-0 aggregate win with a last-16 clash against bitter Premier League rivals Manchester United on 10 and 17 March.
The Reds have a League Cup final against Manchester City to focus on ahead of the mammoth European meeting with their north-west derby rivals.
Lallana and Skrtel appeared to be edging towards a return to competitive action after the pair featured in Friday’s training session at Melwood.
