Liverpool will bring the curtain down on the Jürgen Klopp era on Sunday as Wolves visit to Anfield. The German boss could be in line for a surprise injury boost after three players returned to training on Thursday.

Klopp has had his squad decimated by injuries over the course of the campaign but his side is sure to finish third, which many would have taken back in August. And Liverpool's players will be eager to end Klopp's tenure with three points on what is sure to be an emotional occasion.

Diogo Jota has missed 16 matches this term and hasn't featured since the win over Fulham. But he completed the session at the AXA Training Centre on Thursday, alongside left-back Andy Robertson.

The Scot had missed the draw with Aston Villa on Monday but looks as though he will feature against Wolves. The biggest surprise was Thiago Alcântara's involvement in the session, as reported by injury analyst Ben Dinnery.

Thiago has made just one cameo appearance this season, playing the final five minutes in the defeat to Arsenal back in January. The midfielder had been out of action for 10 months before that match before picking up another muscle injury.

It appeared that he had played his last game for the club, with his contract expiring at the end of the season. But he could yet make the matchday squad on Sunday and be able to bid farewell to Liverpool supporters with one final outing. Klopp will likely provide an update on the Spaniard when he faces the media on Friday.

Thiago's Liverpool career has been blighted by injuries since his arrival from Bayern Munich in 2020. He has struggled with thigh, hamstring and knee issues and has made just 51 starts for the Reds in the Premier League in four years.

Joël Matip is also out of contract after this weekend's match and is also likely to leave on a free transfer. The defender will get the opportunity to say goodbye to supporters with the traditional end-of-season lap of honor. Youngsters Bobby Clark and Ben Doak remain sidelined for the Reds. says: Nobody expected Thiago to be fit until after the end of the season but he could yet be involved on Sunday. Liverpool will not want him to aggravate any niggling injury further and he will only be included if he is fully fit. His Liverpool career has not gone to plan due to injuries but he remains an exceptional footballer and will hope for a fresh start elsewhere next season.
