“Nobody is ruled out” – Klopp confirms Milner, Wijnaldum & Lallana fit vs. West Brom

20 October 2016

Jurgen Klopp has revealed he has a “big squad” to choose from for Liverpool’s home clash against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.


The Reds welcome Tony Pulis’ side to Anfield for their ninth game of the Premier League campaign, looking to extend a run that has seen them go unbeaten in their last eight games in all competitions.

Coming up against a Baggies outfit that held them to draws home and away last season, Klopp’s Liverpool will be eager to take all three points this time around.

Fortunately, speaking to reporters on Thursday afternoon, Klopp confirmed he had no major fitness concerns heading into the clash.

Georginio Wijnaldum, Adam Lallana and James Milner are all, therefore, available, after injuries suffered before and during Liverpool’s 0-0 draw with Manchester United on Monday night.

“In this moment there’s nothing really to moan about,” he said.

“A few kicks and things like this in the game and still felt after the game.

“Nobody is ruled out in the moment. Gini is on the way back, that’s good.

“If nothing happens today or tomorrow we have quite a big squad to choose from.”

The trio have all taken up key roles in Klopp’s side this season, and their fitness is a major boost in the Reds’ pursuit of victory.

Young defender Joe Gomez was also pictured in full training on Wednesday, but won’t be considered for selection, having only recently returned from a long-term ACL injury.

Sheyi Ojo is the only first-team player sidelined at present, with the winger suffering a setback in his recovery from a back problem last month.

With his squad in great condition, Klopp will be urging an improvement on their previous results against West Brom, as they continue their push for the Premier League title this season.
