Matip set for Liverpool return

Liverpool defender Joel Matip took part in training after recovering from the ankle injury which ruled him out of Sunday's defeat to Bournemouth.

After the dramatic 4-3 loss to the Cherries, Jurgen Klopp's side travelled to Barcelona for a warm-weather training camp, and arrived in Catalonia on Sunday night.

ESPN FC reported that on Monday the players participated in a recovery session while Tuesday was set aside for training. 

Matip, who has been an inspiration in the Reds defense after joining on a free transfer from Schalke in the off-season, was one of the squad members which participated in Tuesday's training session.

The Merseysiders have tasted defeat twice in the Premier League so far this season – at home to Burnley and away to Bournemouth – and Matip was absent on both occasions.

They will also visit the Nou Camp to watch Barcelona's Champions League tie against Borussia Monchengladbach, before returning to England on Wednesday.
