But the midfielder only managed to make it 40 minutes into the match before being hauled - mounting fears that he had suffered another injury following his nightmare lay-off already.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has been out injured since he ruptured knee ligaments against Roma in the first leg of the Reds' Champions League semi-final last April.

"I think one of the biggest mistakes I made [in press conferences] was being so excited about having Ox back - not because it's not exciting having Ox back, it's very exciting", said Klopp.

"That put the focus on the Derby U23s game".

"Now we keep him a little bit in the shadow". He's in a good moment, [he'll] train and when he's properly ready to be back I'll inform you. "Anything else would have been really insane because they needed that, they needed treatment, needed rehab and all that stuff".

And Simona Halep's chance to return to number one in the world fell apart against Karolina Pliskova . So I just looked at it like that. "I practiced with Denis way back, he might have been 16, 17".

"Yesterday Joe Gomez was like Christmas, birthday, everything in his face". What a long time! "He looked really good, but it's early stages. He's now adapting again to proper football training after having thousands of rehab sessions".

And now that the youngster has returned back to action, most people are wondering when they will see him out on the pitch.

The Reds now find themselves in a tight battle with Manchester City for the Premier League title, as Klopp looks to try and steer the Merseyside outfit to their first major trophy since his appointment back in 2015.

And with a number of stars on their way back it could provide that welcome boost that could see them over the line.

Mane has been in imperious form since the start of the new year and has scored 11 goals in his last 11 matches for the Reds who are a point behind leaders Manchester City ahead of Sunday's match against Tottenham Hotspur.
