Liverpool FC have been handed a double injury boost ahead of their showdown with Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

Defender Joel Matip has resumed training with the Merseyside outfit at Melwood after recovering from a knock he picked up before the international break.

And goalkeeper Alisson Becker continues to train with Liverpool FC’s goalkeepers at their Melwood base as he nears a return to action from a calf injury.

Matip missed the clashes against FC Salzburg and Leicester City due to the minor injury problem but he is now on course to make a return to action.

It remains to be seen whether he will be fit enough to start Liverpool FC’s trip to Old Trafford on Sunday.

Alisson, meanwhile, has been out of action since suffering a calf strain in Liverpool FC’s season opener against Norwich back at the start of August.

Liverpool FC head into Sunday’s game flying high at the top of the Premier League table, with Jurgen Klopp’s men currently eight points clear of Manchester City in second place.

The Reds are aiming to make it nine wins on the spin in the top flight this season when they head to Old Trafford.
