Jürgen Klopp reported a mixed bag on the fitness front for Liverpool ahead of Saturday's FA Cup fourth-round tie against West Bromwich Albion.

Jordan Henderson, Alberto Moreno and Daniel Sturridge are back in training, while Dejan Lovren has recovered from the illness that ruled him out of Monday’s trip to Swansea City.

But there are injury concerns for Ragnar Klavan and James Milner.

“Millie got a dead leg in training; if Millie says it’s too painful for training then you can imagine how painful it is,” Klopp explained at his pre-match press conference.

“So it’s very important that Hendo is back. We have only one more session, today, but it’s not that my thoughts are finished already about the line-up because it’s that time of the year. Last week I was sitting here talking about things and when I came in, three players were out with illness and I think, ‘woah, that’s not too cool!’ We have to wait a little bit. But it’s good that they are back.

“Clyney is on a good way but of course still not in team training. Alberto trained completely normally, Hendo trained normally. That’s all positive.

“Raggy is out, he was really ill. He lost a few kilos – unbelievable – and now a little, little muscle issue. It’s not too serious but he is not available for tomorrow.

“But, after illness, Dejan is back. It’s that time of the year.”

On the possibility of Henderson and Moreno making their returns against the Baggies, the boss said: “With Hendo it was not the longest break, but it was a break. So we have to think about it, like we have to think about it with one or two other players.

“Alberto Moreno is back in training. So, what do we do [with him]? Robbo played really well, how everybody saw, but played a lot. It’s good that they are all coming back, we need them.”
