Liverpool given injury boost

Ahead of Wednesday’s game, Liverpool have been handed some good news on the injury front.

Liverpool were handed a triple injury boost on Sunday, with Trent Alexander-Arnold and Dominik Szoboszlai both coming off the bench to make their respective returns and Andy Robertson also sent on for his first club appearance since early October.

And speaking after the game, Jurgen Klopp confirmed Alexis Mac Allister, who missed out vs Norwich, should be fine to face Chelsea: “Alexis, he only rested today. He felt a little bit, so he is probably ready for Wednesday as well.

“The next game is around the corner, only three times sleeping and then you play Chelsea here, which is obviously a different game, and then Arsenal away.

“So we need them all and we need them in the best possible shape. Hopefully we are in good shape as a team and we can be an uncomfortable opponent. Let’s see.”
