Thiago not available for WBA but Shaq and Milner may well be
Jurgen Klopp was giving his pre-Xmas press conference this morning, ahead of our game on Sunday, and offered a few updates about players looking close to returning.
Apparently Thiago will 100% not be available for the visit to West Brom on Sunday, but things are looking slightly brighter for both James Milner and Xherdan Shaqiri.
Klopp told the press: "Thiago made first steps back towards team training. Not full yet. After a long time, we cannot rush it.
"Other guys are closer, Shaq trained well. Milly: yesterday full session. We have still two more training days before we make a decision."
Obviously that is no confirmation that either will take part but Klopp has not suggested otherwise, either way, which is a good sign as the Reds will need as many as possible ready.
