Good News for Liverpool

Liverpool fans will retain a feeling of frustration at their team’s inability to break down a stubborn Manchester United side which lacked ambition at Anfield on Monday night.

And those feelings take longer to disperse than normal, with no European commitments to distract them in midweek this term.

But the squad will be fresh for the weekend and the visit of WBA.

And the positive news is twofold on the injury front.

Georginio Wijnaldum, who has settled into the team seamlessly this season after his £25m move from Newcastle, could be fit for the weekend after returning to training following a hamstring injury, according to British media outlet, The Mirror.

Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum was back in training on Wednesday ahead of the clash with West Brom.

The 25-year-old has yet to score for Liverpool in his 7 appearances so far this campaign. But his technique, intelligent movement and athleticism has been widely lauded and caused constant problems for the opposition. TFF is left to wonder if Manchester United would have left with any points had he and Adam Lallana started.

In other news, bad boy Mamadou Sakho is close to a return to full fitness as he continues to train with the U23s, according to The Liverpool Echo.

Sakho fell out with Jurgen Klopp earlier this season and his chances of playing for Liverpool again appeared bleak.

But TFF thinks that he can strengthen the first XI if he gets his head down and U23 boss Michael Beale complemented him for his performances for the B-team this week:

“I thought Mama looked strong,”

“United were always looking for their No 9 and his aerial threat but Mama showed his experience.

“He was a good guide for young Tiago Ilori alongside him who seems to be in fine form too at the moment.”

“Mama is training with us and he’s working hard every day. That’s the closest he’s looked to full fitness. I couple more games like that and we’ll see what happens from there.”
