There were doubts over whether the Liverpool duo would make this weekend’s game due to injury. Fabinho has not featured since the 2-1 win at Aston Villa on May 10 and missed the FA Cup final, while Thiago was taken off at half-time in the final-day clash with Wolves.

However, both were spotted training with the Liverpool squad in Paris. The pair appeared to be running with ease as they warmed up in the sunshine. This is positive news for the Reds, who could be with both midfielders for the game. The likes of Jordan Henderson, Naby Keita and James Milner are also in the squad.
