Liverpool’s bid to finish inside the top four has received a major boost after the return of Nathaniel Clyne from a long term injury.
The England full back has been out of action since last summer’s preseason games. In his absence, Liverpool have been alternating between Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold, but the duo are seen as inexperienced even though they have impressed in that role.
Clyne played for England in the last Euros in France, and he was man of the match in their last group game which turned out to be his only performance for the Three Lions in that competition.
He travelled with Liverpool to Portugal, but he did not feature in their Champions League clash with Jurgen Klopp confirming that it is too early for the defender to get back into action.
Clyne was signed from Southampton a few seasons ago for £12 million, and he remains one of the best players Liverpool have ever signed from the South Coast outfit.
Klopp would be hoping he can get back into competitive shape sooner rather than later as they bid to challenge for the Champions League and finish second on the Premier League table.
