The Yorkshireman has been restricted to a 10-minute outing as a substitute at Brighton since sustaining a hamstring injury against Everton during the Reds’ first game following lockdown.
However, speaking ahead of last week’s shock defeat to Arsenal, Jurgen Klopp revealed that his vice-captain was closing in a comeback.
He said: "Millie is in contention, or is pretty safe for the Chelsea game; nobody told me yet he will be available for tomorrow – and he didn't train yesterday, so that's not a good sign then.
"But it will be fine for Chelsea, I am pretty sure.”
True to his manager’s word, Milner has subsequently been spotted in training at Melwood, meaning he should be available to take on Frank Lampard’s men.
However, both men are sure to be involved in the trophy presentation ceremony that will follow Liverpool’s clash with Chelsea.
