Photos: Liverpool signing signing joins Firmino and Sturridge in training ahead of Stoke clash

Ragnar Klavan chats with Jurgen Klopp after the Liverpool defender's impressive Merseyside derby performance

Ragnar Klavan was all smiles with manager Jurgen Klopp as Roberto Firmino and Daniel Sturridge trained with the Liverpool squad ahead of their home clash against Stoke City at Anfield on Monday evening.

The Merseyside outfit trained at Melwood despite their derby heroics less than 24 hours earlier after Sadio Mane scored a winner in the fourth minute of added time at Goodison Park to seal a 1-0 victory over Everton.

Sturridge made his return to first-team action on Monday night after the England international has been sidelined with an injury problem over the past month since a goalless draw with Southampton at St Mary’s.

However, the 27-year-old striker trained alongside his Liverpool team-mates in cold conditions at Melwood as Sturridge looks to work on his match sharpness ahead of the visit of Stoke at Anfield on 27 December.

Here is a round-up of the best photos from Liverpool’s training session at Melwood on Tuesday afternoon.
