Liverpool re-opens training ground after COVID shutdown

The club's League Cup semi-final, first leg away to Arsenal was postponed on Thursday, but Sunday's FA Cup tie against Shrewsbury is expected to go ahead.

Liverpool says it has re-opened its training ground after it was closed this week following a COVID-19 outbreak among players and staff.

The club's League Cup semi-final, first leg away to Arsenal was postponed on Thursday, but Sunday's FA Cup tie against Shrewsbury is expected to go ahead.

"After consultation with the relevant Public Health authority, operations have now resumed within the first-team set-up at the training ground," a statement said.

With manager Jergen Klopp and assistant Pep Lijnders having tested positive for COVID-19, another assistant manager Peter Krawietz will prepare the team for the tie against Shrewsbury.

Klopp also missed last weekend's 2-2 draw at Chelsea but could be back at the helm for Sunday's game.
