Liverpool have received a huge boost during international week.

Brendan Rodgers has been given the perfect pick-me-up to the Reds' growing top-four hopes with the return of four key players to first team action.

England star Glen Johnson, Brazilian Philippe Coutinho, new signing Aly Cissokho and Wales midfielder Joe Allen are all due back in training this week as the Reds prepare for a two-month Premier League programme that will define their ambition for the rest of the season.
