Which players are struggling to be fit for Liverpool vs. West Bromwich Albion?…

Adam Lallana is in line for a recall to the starting eleven after impressing as a 60th minute substitute in Monday’s frustrating 0-0 draw with Manchester United.

The England man suffered a groin injury against Swansea City on October 1 but was deemed fit enough to play a part against Jose Mourinho’s men and has subsequently suffered no ill-effects.

Fellow midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum could also return to the fold after missing the visit of United due to a hip problem suffered on international duty.

If the Dutchman cannot play from the start, Emre Can is likely to keep his place despite an inconsistent showing during his first 90 minutes of football in five months.

Elsewhere, youngsters Joe Gomez (calf) and Sheyi Ojo (back) continue to battle back to fitness following injury and will almost certainly need to get some U23 minutes under their belts before being considered for first team action.

The visitors have no known injury concerns ahead of their trip to Merseyside but will be without defender Jonny Evans through suspension.
