Jamie Carragher has handed Liverpool an injury boost after being declared fit for Thursday's Europa League clash with Unirea Urziceni.
The Reds defender was expected Liverpool's Europa League clash after being forced off against Arsenal last week with a groin problem.
However, Carragher has recovered from the problem and has been able to take part in training this week.
Yossi Benayoun is also back in training after a month out with a rib injury and Reds boss Rafa Benitez will make a late decision on whether or not to use the Israeli against Unirea.
"Carra is training again and he will be available, which is very good news for us as he is an important player for us," said Benitez.
"Yossi is training with the team. He still has a problem with his rib but at least he is training. We will decide about him on Thursday."
ProgressFernando Torres and Glen Johnson are both making progress on their returns to fitness from knee problems, but they are still a few weeks away from being available.
"Torres and Johnson are progressing and working with the fitness coach," added Benitez.
"They are very close but not available yet."
