Virgil van Dijk looks on course for an early return from injury as he shared a clip with supporters on Instagram on Sunday morning.
The Dutchman has been out of action since suffering a knee injury against Everton in mid-October following a rash challenge by Blues goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.
The 29-year-old underwent surgery on the issue shortly after and wasn't expected to feature again this season, despite the club intentionally choosing not to outline a definite timeframe.
While an imminent return for Van Dijk is not on the cards, the Reds centre-back appears to be recuperating well and is likely to be on track for a return before the end of the season.

He had minimal strapping on his knee as he continued his rehab in Dubai, where he is currently undergoing a tailored warm weather programme to get back to full fitness.
Van Dijk bumped into a familiar face in Dejan Lovren while at Dubai's Sports City, with the former Reds teammates sharing a selfie together.
It was nice to see my former teammate @VirgilvDijk today.
A tough injury he had, but he looks stronger than ever, soon brother you will be on top of your level again.
Liverpool supporters will get a better idea on his return date within the next fortnight, with the club having to submit their Premier League squad for the rest of the season at the end of the month.
Here's how Reds supporters reacted to Van Dijk's latest update on Twitter.
Things we love to see ❤️ Waiting for you champ 😭
