James Milner, Adam Lallana and Xherdan Shaqiri appear to be available for Liverpool’s Premier League clash against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium tonight.
Milner, Lallana and Shaqiri did not take part in Liverpool’s 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace last week.
However, the aforementioned players recently trained alongside their teammates, according to Read Liverpool. That does suggest that they are all available for tonight’s game.
ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
This is great news for Reds boss Jurgen Klopp. It ultimately just gives him a few more options.
As the Reds were so good against Crystal Palace last week, I would not expect Klopp to change his starting XI.
That would mean that Milner, Lallana and Shaqiri would have to settle for the bench. I do hope that we see Lallana get some minutes on the pitch before the season concludes, as he will be departing the club come the end of the campaign.
It would be nice to see Lallana wearing the famous red one more time. The Englishman has been at the club since 2014, which means that he is a player that I do have a lot of respect for.
