Lallana's Fitness to be Closely Managed, Moreno and Matip Still Sidelined

Lallana's Fitness to be Closely Managed, Moreno and Matip Still Sidelined

After being held to a bitterly disappointing draw in Sunday's Merseyside derby against Everton, Liverpool will be keen to make an immediate return to winning ways when they line up against West Bromwich Albion at Anfield on Wednesday night.

"I'm the psychologist - I've told them and I'm sure they've got the message", he said.

Lallana is expected to be back sooner than centre back Joel Matip, who is recovering from a thigh problem. "That's it. We have to see, but he is in a good way".

"We've seen it a few times this season at Anfield - people know the attacking threats we have and tend to sit off a bit because we are so quick on the counter".

The Spain global will also missed Wednesday's visit of West Brom and could now be sidelined for the remainder of the Reds' festive period.

Jurgen Klopp's side dominated the game and should have had all three points wrapped up by the break.

6. Dejan Lovren

The two are likely to be re-called to the starting line-up here, though the Premier League's top scorer Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané could consequently be rested, West Brom likely left needing to produce a dogged defensive display. He trains completely normally.

"It's not clear, we play tomorrow but not clear", Klopp said in his press conference.

Andrew Robertson could start back-to-back league games for Liverpool for the first time with Alberto Moreno out until the New Year with the ankle injury that kept him out of the Merseyside derby. We need him for the next weeks. For that we need each minute and that's what we'll do.

"Joel is running but not more".

"But it's still possible that it's not that long and it's possible I don't know until six weeks".

They too have a new recently appointed manager, like Everton, and it can be a hard game to predict against sides like that, with players out to impress the new man in charge.
