Xherdan Shaqiri and Naby Keita fitness latest

Liverpool will further assess an injury Xherdan Shaqiri sustained during Switzerland’s Nations League encounter with England.

The forward is due to return to Melwood in the coming weeks, where the calf issue will be checked by the Reds’ medical team.

The knock forced Shaqiri from the field after 65 minutes during the encounter at Estadio D Afonso Henriques in Portugal on June 9.

Liverpool expect Naby Keita to be fit to begin his pre-season training programme later this month.

The midfielder sustained a minor adductor strain during Africa Cup of Nations duty with Guinea.

The injury ended Keita’s participation in the tournament and he returned to Melwood for further examination by the club’s medical team.

However, he is set to be ready to start pre-season training as planned when back on Merseyside following an end-of-season break later in July.
