Liverpool in triple injury boost as Jurgen Klopp welcomes Thiago, James Milner and Shaqiri back ahead of West Brom clash

LIVERPOOL have been boosted by THREE players returning from injury ahead of the festive schedule.

Jurgen Klopp welcomed back Thiago, James Milner and Xherdan Shaqiri to the first-team training fold.

It's a massive boost for the Premier League leaders ahead of their clash with West Brom on Sunday after a string of injury setbacks this year.

James Milner hasn't featured since Liverpool's 1-1 draw at Brighton on November 28 while Xherdan Shaqiri has been out since the Leicester win on November 22.

Thiago, meanwhile, has played just twice for the Reds since his summer move from Bayern Munich.

Liverpool recently welcomed back Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to first-team action.

Klopp's men have suffered with injuries this season.

Title-winning stalwarts Alisson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jordan Henderson and Fabinho have all been out for periods.

The Reds have also missed Mo Salah and Sadio Mane after positive coronavirus tests.

The champions are still without new signing Diogo Jota for a few more weeks at least.

Centre-backs Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez remain sidelined for a longer period after serious knee injuries.

Liverpool are four points clear of second-placed Leicester headed into Christmas.

Klopp's men face a trip to Newcastle on December 30 to round off 2020.
