Liverpool team news: Injury, suspension list vs. West Bromwich Albion

Sports Mole rounds up all of Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's Premier League fixture with West Bromwich Albion.

Liverpool will be aiming to give their top-four hopes another boost when they travel to relegated West Bromwich Albion for Sunday's Premier League encounter.

Jurgen Klopp's side came out on top in a six-goal thriller with Manchester United on Thursday night, as Roberto Firmino bagged a brace while Diogo Jota and Mohamed Salah also struck in a 4-2 win.

The Reds have since leapfrogged West Ham United into fifth and sit four points behind Chelsea - who have played a game more - in the final Champions League spot.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's game.
