Klopp’s squad are embarking on a crucial few weeks as they have a Champions League quarter-final against Manchester City and the Merseyside derby with Everton on the horizon.

Salah could be seen fine-tuning his shooting skills as he lashed balls into the back of the net. The Egyptian is leading the race for the Premier League’s Golden Boot after scoring four last time out against Watford.

England stars Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain were also involved in the session while Joe Gomez could not be seen after suffering an ankle problem while away with Gareth Southgate’s squad.

Virgil van Dijk was installed as Holland’s new captain last week and the towering defender was photographed taking part in the practice.

The group were seen taking part in a series of drills with Klopp pictured barking instructions at his players as they aim to extend their lead in the table over Chelsea and Tottenham before those two meet at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

The Reds are currently seven points clear of fifth-placed Chelsea but Antonio Conte’s side do have a game in hand.
