Liverpool set for West Brom clash

Liverpool are set to have both Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling available for tonight’s visit of West Bromwich Albion.

Brazilian midfielder Philippe Coutinho could also feature after training with his new team mates.

The Reds will be eager to bounce back from back to back defeats by the Baggies, who sit just one place and two points below them in the table.

If Liverpool avoid defeat, they will leapfrog Swansea City into seventh place, ahead of their clash with the Welsh side next weekend.

Meanwhile West Brom boss Steve Clarke, who returns to Anfield for the first time since leaving the club with Kenny Dalglish last summer, has praised the players who were signed under their regime.

Jordan Henderson, Stewart Downing and Jose Enrique, who have impressed in recent weeks, are all likely to feature on Monday night.

Liverpool will wear the name of Standard Chartered’s charitable initiative Seeing Is Believing, which aims to tackle avoidable blindness in developing countries, on their shirts for the match.

Elsewhere, ESPN have reported that the club are ‘leading the race’ to sign attacking midfielder Christian Eriksen from Ajax at the end of the season.

According to an Ajax fansite, the Danish midfielder has already held talks with Liverpool representatives.
