Liverpool handed triple injury boost ahead of Huddersfield clash

Virgil van Dijk

Liverpool have been handed a triple boost ahead of their game against Huddersfield on Saturday. The Mirror reports that Virgil van Dijk, James Milner and Mohamed Salah are certain of being fit for the Premier League game.

Milner had injured his hamstring in the 0-0 draw against Manchester City and was expected to be out of action until December, as per the report.

However, the Englishman has made a remarkable recovery, and the report adds that Liverpool’s medics have given him the all-clear to make a comeback.

Milner has to take part in full training on Thursday to have a chance of making it to the team for the Huddersfield game.

Salah and Van Dijk also had injuries during the international break. However, the Egyptian only has a slight muscle strain while the Dutch defender has been dealing with a rib injury that requires pain-killers, as per the report.

The forward is returning to Liverpool for further treatment and should participate in full training before Thursday, according to the Mirror.

Ronald Koeman shed light on Van Dijk’s problem and was quoted by the Mirror as saying:

“He spoke to the manager. The medical staff of the Dutch national team spoke to the medical staff of Liverpool and made the decision that he was playing only the Germany game and then after back to Liverpool.

“He is ready to play next weekend.”

Liverpool should be favourites for the three points against the Terriers and if Salah and Van Dijk start, we should come out easy winners on Saturday.

Liverpool star cuts short international duty after picking up rib injury

Virgil van Dijk

Virgil van Dijk was amongst the goals against Germany for the Netherlands but the defender has a rib injury, as per the Liverpool Echo.

The report claims that the centre-back has returned to the club after being ruled out of the friendly against Belgium.

A statement from the Dutch team (h/t Liverpool Echo) said:

“After consultation, it was decided to use the player only for the game against Germany.”

The report adds that Liverpool will assess the injury, and we will then get an idea of the extent of his problem.

Virgil van Dijk

Van Dijk had a rib problem earlier in the season and was rested in our Carabao Cup loss against Chelsea. The Dutchman has been reliable at the back and is one of the best defenders in the Premier League.

Liverpool’s next game is against Huddersfield on Saturday, and it will be interesting to see who will play in the heart of the defence.

Jurgen Klopp can call upon Dejan Lovren or Joel Matip to partner Joe Gomez in the back as the match against the Terriers should not be the most difficult outing.

Gomez has been the other centre-back who has been brilliant for us this season and in all probability, Lovren should partner the English youngster.

“Exactly what I expected” – Liverpool’s summer signing opens up on his time at Anfield so far

Xherdan Shaqiri

Xherdan Shaqiri has admitted that he knew about the difficulties in starting for Liverpool, and is willing to bide his time for his chance.

The former Stoke City attacker joined the Reds in the summer for £13million (h/t Mirror) but hasn’t scored a goal this season.

Shaqiri also has a couple of starts to his name but is hopeful of more chances as the season is still in its infancy. The 27-year-old was speaking to Aargauer Zeitung (h/t Mirror) and added that he is waiting for his opportunity to shine.

“You don’t have to keep me happy.

“The process has worked well for me so far. Sure, every professional wants to play. I do too, but there are still a lot of games to come.

“On top of that, you just need to look and acknowledge what has been done at Liverpool recently. A lot of people did a good job.

“That’s why everything hasn’t been turned upside down overnight.”

Xherdan Shaqiri

The Swiss star was aware he would have to work hard to gain a foothold at Liverpool too.

“What is happening is exactly what I expected. I decided to move to Liverpool fully aware that I would have a harder time in a club of this standing than, for example, other clubs that tried to help me.”

Shaqiri has looked decent in all the games he has played and should get a few starts given we don’t face tough opposition in the coming weeks.
