The early signs are good for Jamie Murphy ahead of the 2019/20 season.
Last term, his hopes of being a crucial figure under Steven Gerrard were dashed by a serious injury.
It must have been a bitter pill to swallow. However, he’s now back at it and hoping to stake a claim to feature during the upcoming Europa League Qualifiers.
He tweeted a photo of himself in full flight during a training session at the club’s pre-season camp in Portugal.

It’s great to see him back out there looking fit and strong.
He faces a battle to nail down a spot in the Gerrard’s starting XI, though.
Right now, his main competition on the left appears to be new arrival, Jordan Jones. The Northern Ireland international prefers that side and starred for his country during recent Euro 2020 qualifiers.
Nevertheless, plenty of Bears are delighted to see Murphy back fit and are looking forward to seeing what he will offer.
Here’s a selection of reactions to his post:
Glad to see you back 💪👊 🔴⚪️🔵
