Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri are back in training after respective injury problems, Jurgen Klopp has confirmed.

Liverpool suffered a pre-season outing to forget on Sunday, as Napoli defeated them 3-0 at Murrayfield.

The Reds are still without a number of key figures, however, with Keita and Shaqiri two of those missing in Edinburgh.

The pair are now back available, though, as Klopp and his players prepare to head to Evian for a training camp, putting them through their paces with various types of squats, sprint drills and other fitness-improving measures.

Speaking to LiverpoolFC.com after the loss to Napoli, the Liverpool manager said Keita and Shaqiri will hopefully feature in Wednesday’s clash with Lyon:

Shaqiri and Keita as well, they already trained one session with us.

They are not here but they will come tomorrow because they train today. They will come tomorrow and should hopefully be a step further.

Hopefully they can play a couple of minutes on Wednesday.

It is an undoubted boost for the Merseysiders, who have looked short in terms of guile and attacking threat this summer.

Both Keita and Shaqiri experienced up-and-down first seasons at Anfield, but they will prove to be important figures moving forward.

With Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino not likely to be on the same pitch together for a few weeks, there will be opportunities to shine in the starting lineup.
