Liverpool expect to head into Saturday’s game against West Bromwich Albion with all their first team regulars ready to play according to Jürgen Klopp, who was asked about the status of Gini Wijnaldum and James Milner at his pre-match press conference today.
“In this moment there’s nothing really to moan about,” was Klopp’s response. “We had a few kicks and things like this in the last game but no one is ruled out at the moment. Gini is on the way back and if nothing happens today or tomorrow we’ve got a big squad to choose from.”
Wijnaldum missed the Manchester United match on Monday after picking up a knock while on international duty, but with the player seen taking part in training today, the assumption was that he would be ready to at least make the bench on Saturday.
Milner, on the other hand, was not involved in training. Klopp, though, doesn’t expect Milner not to be available come Saturday afternoon. He’s also expecting the increasingly important Adam Lallana to be ready to go again, which should mean a start for the key midfielder.
“It’s all good with Adam,” Klopp said. “This week he could train properly until now and so everything is good.”
