Things are starting to look up for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp on the injury front.
Klopp revealed on the official Liverpool website that star midfielder Emre Can has recovered from injury and that he is ready for first team action.
Can has been out sidelined since picking up an injury in the League Cup clash against Burton Albion last month.
The Reds have been without their star man in midfield but have managed to cope, winning their last two consecutive league games against reigning Premier League champions Leicester City and most recently Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Speaking ahead of the Derby County clash in the League Cup game this evening Klopp revealed that Can is ready to play but that he may not start against Derby.
“Emre’s in training and when he’s in training then he’s available,” Klopp was quoted as saying by the official Liverpool website.
“He was last week in training but we took him to the side to do some specific work because he didn’t have a proper pre-season, and now with injuries then he’s not been available for three or four weeks. It [the game at Burton] was not yesterday, that’s for sure.
“He’s available and now he can collect match time. How much, if he starts or not [against Derby] – no decision until now.”
