Liverpool injury update ahead of Merseyside derby on Sunday
Jürgen Klopp has no new injury concerns ahead of Liverpool’s clash at Goodison Park on Sunday evening.
The Reds’ German boss left Andy Robertson and Mohamed Salah out of last week’s 6-0 friendly victory over Blackburn Rovers as a precaution. It seems both players are now back to full fitness having taken part in Sunday’s inter-squad friendly.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is also expected to be available for selection. The midfielder had to come off in the Blackburn game after picking up a slight knock.
Before the COVID-19 pandemic stopped Premier League football, Adrián had been back in goals for The Reds due to another injury to Alisson Becker. Alisson is fit again and should return to the starting lineup against Everton.
Xherdan Shaqiri, according to PhysioRoom.com, is still nursing that mysterious calf injury and unavailable to play.
The good news from all of that is Klopp’s team will be at full strength to face Everton.
With just six more points needed to secure the club’s 19th league title success, Liverpool will be going for the jugular at Goodison Park.
After Everton, Klopp and co then welcome Crystal Palace to Anfield before travelling to face Manchester City on July 2nd.
