Trent Alexander Arnold is set to return to fitness after missing two games with a foot injury while Naby Keita is expected to be fit to face Newcastle United on Boxing Day.

The Scouser was in the stands to watch Liverpool beat Wolves 2-0 at Molineux on Friday but will likely be back in the matchday squad to face Newcastle United.

James Milner and Nathaniel Clyne have both covered for Trent in his injury-enforced absence and his return to fitness will be a boost for Klopp’s side as they await the return of Joe Gomez and Joel Matip from respective fractures.

The Liverpool Echo’s Ian Doyle reports that after returning to training, Alexander-Arnold could make a return to the starting lineup to face Newcastle.

Meanwhile, Keita is also set to be fit to face the Magpies despite going off injured against Wolves with a cut on his foot after a number of robust challenges.

With the Reds looking to maintain their four point lead over Manchester City at the top of the Premier League, a win at Anfield will mean a lot ahead of their trip to the Etihad in the New Year.
