Andy Robertson and Mo Salah will be available for Liverpool’s trip to Goodison Park on Sunday, according to the Daily Mail‘s Dominic King.
The usually reliable journalist confirmed on his Twitter account yesterday that while the pair were omitted from the team that beat Blackburn Rovers 6-0 in a friendly last week, it was simply a precaution. They have since been involved in training games:
Liverpool squad has no fitness worries so far ahead of first game back. There was an inter-squad game at Anfield yesterday, which involved Mo Salah and Andy Robertson after they had sat out Blackburn friendly as a precaution.

Although King mentions that there are “no fitness worries” ahead of the Merseyside derby, that is not strictly accurate with Xherdan Shaqiri expected to miss the game against Everton.
The Swiss international is reportedly currently undergoing treatment on a muscular injury, which means he hasn’t featured in any warm-up games for the Reds.
However, with Robertson and Salah back in the fold, manager Jurgen Klopp will be able to field an extremely strong starting eleven this weekend in what is likely to be fiercely contested game.
