Jürgen Klopp has confirmed that Liverpool have no fresh injury concerns and will have a near full squad to choose from when they travel to play Hull this weekend.
Thank the footballing gods.
Liverpool’s hopes of getting their season back on track rely heavily on having as many players fit and firing as possible. Unfortunately, in the month of January, Liverpool had to do without their most influential forward, midfielder and defender in Sadio Mané, Philippe Coutinho and Jöel Matip.
Liverpool only won one game in the first month of 2017, with a gutless 1-0 win over Plymouth Argyle being their only result to write home about. Liverpool’s year-long record of not losing at Anfield was broken by Swansea and then Southampton and then Wolves.
If Klopp’s side need anything, it’s form and they need it right away. The best way to start is for Liverpool’s German manager to name his best starting lineup every week. Despite not winning a single game in the Premier League in January, Liverpool remain within touching distance of second and third-placed Tottenham and Arsenal.

Aside from Danny Ings, Ovie Ejaria and Marko Grujic, Klopp confirmed at his press conference that he is not faced with any new injuries.
“We had, before the [Chelsea] game, a few issues,” he explained to reporters at his pre-match press conference.
“We had still Clyney with the [rib] problem, but he was really fine, Hendo was really fine, Dejan Lovren was then really fine.
“Nothing else really happened in the game so they should be all in training today.”
Liverpool travel to the KCOM Stadium tomorrow afternoon and will have nothing less than three points on the agenda. With Arsenal and Chelsea playing in the early kickoff on Saturday and the Manchester derby kicking off at lunchtime on Sunday, Liverpool have a great chance to make everyone forget that January ever happened.
Wouldn’t that be great?
