Liverpool team news: Huge boost as Roberto Firmino trains ahead of Barcelona Champions League clash

Liverpool were handed a huge boost on the eve of their Champions League semi-final first leg against Barcelona as injury doubt Roberto Firmino trained with Jurgen Klopp’s squad.

Firmino, the Brazil forward, missed last Friday’s Premier League defeat of Huddersfield with what manager Klopp described as a ‘small muscle tear’.

There was a happy sight for Liverpool supporters as Firmino trained on Tuesday

There were fears the injury would rule the 27-year-old out Wednesday evening’s trip to Camp Nou, but he joined the rest of the squad as they held a training session in front of the media prior to travelling, raising hopes he’ll be fit to play.

Rumours of an injury scare concerning forward Mohamed Salah appeared wide of the mark as the Egyptian played a full part in training.
