By Harvey Byrne
Loris Karius has uploaded a video that suggests he is recovering well from his broken hand.
The Liverpool goalkeeper took to Twitter on Tuesday afternoon to demonstrate that he is able to do arm work in the gym, as he continues his injury rehabilitation.
The German goalkeeper suffered a broken hand after a collision with team-mate Dejan Lovren during the club’s pre-season defeat against Chelsea in the US this summer.
The goalkeeper revealed that he had undergone “successful surgery” on his hand at the beginning of August and this latest update from his personal Twitter account will encourage fans of the Anfield club still further.

The 23-year-old joined Jurgen Klopp’s side this summer for £4.7million and was expected to start ahead of current number one Simon Mignolet in the Reds’ first game of the season.
However, due to the injury Mignolet started in goal against Arsenal and the Belgian stopper didn’t do himself any favours in regards to the number one jersey.
Despite saving a penalty early on in the game from Theo Walcott, the goalkeeper went on to concede three goals as the Reds battled to a 4-3 victory.
Klopp will be keen to ensure that Karius is back in the first team as soon as possible with 39-year-old Alex Manninger his only other alternative to Mignolet in the squad.
In other Liverpool team news, Stan Collymore believes that Jurgen Klopp will be “unhappy” with the Reds display against Arsenal.
