Pereira (Achilles) is projected to return to the pitch in January, according to manager Brendan Rodgers. "Mentally, he's in a really good place. He's had a tough, though time with long-term injuries but he's coping very well, working very hard, and still well on schedule for coming back for the second half of the season."
ANALYSIS
Pereira has spent the last couple years rehabbing injuries, so this recovery is going to take a bit of time. While he could be in limited training in January, he may need more than a month of work before he's ready for action again, pointing to a return to the squad likely later than January.
