Defender Joel Matip is expected to be fit for Liverpool's Premier League clash with West Ham at Anfield on Sunday, live on Sky Sports.
The 25-year-old has been the stand-out performer in the Reds' back-line since joining the club from Schalke last summer.
Liverpool missing Matip
Joel Matip's absence was felt by Liverpool at Bournemouth. What makes him so vital?
Liverpool have only once conceded more than a single goal with the Cameroon international in the starting line-up and have not lost a game.
Matip sat out Sunday's trip to Bournemouth with an ankle injury and was badly missed as Liverpool threw away a 3-1 lead to lose 4-3 at the Vitality Stadium.
However, having returned to training at the end of last week, he was with the squad again on Tuesday at their camp in Barcelona and should be available to Jurgen Klopp this weekend.
The Bournemouth loss took the tally of goals conceded without Matip in the side to 10 from five games.
