Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish's defensive injury crisis could be eased by the return of Brazilian left-back Fabio Aurelio.

Having spent a month on the sidelines after tearing his hamstring in the home victory over Manchester United, the 31-year-old defender has returned to full training with the first team.

The news is a timely boost for the Reds who are currently without the services of full-backs Martin Kelly, Glen Johnson and Daniel Agger.

The extent of Johnson and Agger's injuries is yet to be discovered after both players limped off in Saturday's 2-1 defeat at West Brom, but Aurelio’s return will ease the manager’s current defensive headache.


Aurelio has himself endured an injury-plagued season having started only ten games for Liverpool this term in all competitions after re-signing for the Reds last summer.

He will be hoping to prove his fitness ahead of next Monday’s all-important Barclays Premier League clash with Manchester City at Anfield.

Dalglish may call on talented teenagers Jack Robinson and John Flanagan to bolster his back line, after the duo were left out of the reserve team for last night’s game against Aston Villa and are expected to train with the first team squad this week.
