LIVERPOOL V HUDDERSFIELD: TEAM NEWS.
Dejan Lovren could return for Liverpool’s meeting with Huddersfield Town, but Jürgen Klopp will not make sweeping changes to his team ahead of their trip to Barcelona.
Ilness precluded Lovren from being part of the Reds’ squad for last Wednesday’s win at Porto, with the centre-back also missing the victory over Cardiff City at the weekend.
The No.6 is expected to be back for Friday’s game against Jan Siewert’s side, though Klopp is less sure when it comes to the availability of Fabinho and Adam Lallana. “All a bit questionable, we don’t know exactly in the moment. We will have to see today,” the boss said on Thursday regarding the trio’s fitness. “We gave them all a proper rest. Dejan trained yesterday so that’s OK probably and the other two we will see.” On Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Klopp continued: “Ox trained, all good.” The clash with already-relegated Huddersfield comes five days before a visit to Camp Nou for the Champions League semi-final first leg.
That tie, however, is not the manager’s priority at present with his focus instead on the opportunity to return to the top of the Premier League.
Klopp stated: “We had enough time to recover after the last game, we have enough time to recover for the next game. Barcelona has nothing to do with the game on Friday night.” 🔴 #LFC
