Liverpool’s new signing from AS Roma, striker Sophie Roman Haug, should be fit to return from her spell on the sidelines with a broken nose. Haug picked up her injury a month ago on international duty with Norway, but has returned to full training with Matt Beard’s side.
She will wear a protective facemask should she make her debut against Everton at Anfield this Sunday, and will presumably be excited to be a part of the squad in this season’s first derby.
Matt Beard has other injury concerns, of course, with regulars Niamh Fahey, Leanne Kiernan, and Shanice van de Sanden all unable to feature.
The Reds will hope to continue a very strong start in the league with a victory against their closest rivals despite injury limitations.
