Liverpool Team News: Klopp Confirms Huge Double Injury Boost Ahead Of WBA
Jurgen Klopp has confirmed a huge double injury boost ahead of Liverpool’s trip to West Brom this weekend. See details here
Liverpool will be looking to keep the pressure on at the top of the table when they take on West Brom at the Hawthorns on Saturday evening.
Ahead of the game, Jurgen Klopp has been speaking to the media at his pre-match press conference this afternoon and he’s offered reporters a team news and injury update.
The Reds coach was pleased to confirm that Gino Wijnaldum is expected to return to the squad after recovering from a hamstring injury that kept him out of the 0-0 draw with Manchester United on Monday night.
Wijnaldum suffered the injury while away with the Dutch national team earlier this month but returned to training on Wednesday and is now in contention to make his comeback this weekend.
In a double boost, Klopp also confirmed that James Milner has been passed fit after missing training yesterday having been forced off at Anfield on Monday with a head injury.
Adam Lallana also made a successful return to the side against United after overcoming a groin injury that kept him out of England duty while Nathaniel Clyne showed no sign of the injury that also kept him out of the Three Lions recent World Cup qualifiers.
Klopp says he has no other injury problems to contend with as Joe Gomez is also back in full training after recovering from a long-term knee injury so the Merseysiders head to the Hawthorns with virtually a fully-fit squad to choose from.
Klopp told reporters this afternoon:
Klopp says Wijnaldum is on the way back. Will train today. Milner fit.

Klopp on injuries. "Nobody is ruled out at the moment, and Gini is on the way back. We have quite a big squad if nothing happens today."
