Training pictures: Players prepare for Sunday's Liverpool clash

Rémi Garde was hard at work today as he oversaw training ahead of the Liverpool clash.

And he was boosted by the return of defender Alan Hutton, who was back on the fields of Bodymoor Heath on the eve of the Reds clash.

There was a good mood at the complex, with the already-positive atmosphere boosted by the win over Norwich in the previous weekend.

Garde wasn't entirely happy with the performance-levels that afternoon and he's been looking to raise them over the last few days as we come up against Jurgen Klopp's men.

Our boss is a big fan of the German and his side but is fully focused on three points this weekend for the claret and blues in B6.

Garde would normally be happy with a draw against the Europa League team but knows that maximum points are absolutely essential now as we look to win our survival fight.

Garde is still hopeful of having Rudy Gestede and Carlos Sanchez available this weekend but will do a check on them closer to kick-off.
