Liverpool receive major injury boost ahead of Premier League clash with Fulham

Liverpool are expecting Joe Gomez to be fit to face Fuham this weekend, with all of Jordan Henderson, Xherdan Shaqiri and Naby Keita pushing for a starting spot.

After dropping two points in their last Premier League outing, Liverpool are out for blood and a midweek defeat in Serbia will also serve as motivation to return to winning ways as the Reds head towards the crunch festive fixture list.

The good news is that Liverpool have Naby Keita back from injury after the Guinean made a return to training at the end of last week and is now in contention to make his fourth start in the Premier League.

His drive and trickery on the ball should see the Reds play with renewed vigour in the middle of the park after a frankly shocking display against Red Star Belgrade.

Jordan Henderson is also on the comeback trail but the Englishman is likely to start from the bench with many hoping for Naby Keita and Fabinho to be paired in midfield with Xherdan Shaqiri coming in for added creativity.

Joe Gomez, who was a doubt to play this weekend after picking up an Achilles issue, is set to return to the starting lineup. He started from the bench midweek in the Champions League but with Trent Alexander-Arnold struggling for form, Lovren could start alongside van Dijk with Gomez at right back.

With Fulham languishing at the very bottom of the Premier League, Klopp will be looking to use a trip to Craven Cottage to get his side back to winning ways.
