Pardew wants West Brom to 'fight like hell' to avoid shocking record

Pardew wants West Brom to 'fight like hell' to avoid shocking record

Hot off the heels of the draw with Everton on Sunday, Liverpool square up with struggling West Bromwich Albion at Anfield and even though he got some heat for making a number of changes in the Derby, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp will nearly certainly be forced to switch things up tomorrow - though it remains unlikely that Adam Lallana will be risked against the Baggies.

"Not ready for sure, no chance", Klopp said when asked whether Moreno could potentially return for West Bromwich's visit.

"We have a few knocks and have to wait, nothing serious after the last game, but it's possible for a couple to miss West Brom".

West Brom are 17th after being beaten by fellow strugglers Swansea in their last match, while third-placed Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 10 games in all competitions.

The Spain global will also missed Wednesday's visit of West Brom and could now be sidelined for the remainder of the Reds' festive period.

Klopp has regularly rotated his squad as he bids to avoid a winter slump which nearly put paid to his side's Champions League aspirations last season, and he will hope Adam Lallana will soon be able to ease the workload on the rest of his Liverpool teammates after returning to first-team training following a muscle problem. He trains completely normally.

"We should not need him for tomorrow [Wednesday] but then, step by step, we need to see how we can bring him into shape".

West Brom have not had the best start to their season and they will know that if they lose this week, they will most likely be in the relegation zone.

"Joel is running but not more".

Klopp is still unable to call on injured stars Nathaniel Clyne, Alberto Moreno, Joel Matip, while Adam Lallana isn't yet fit enough despite returning to training.

"But it's still possible it's not that long but also that it's possibly up to six weeks, it's really not decided so far so we'll have to taken a look". Last game they played with all three strikers against Swansea (City).
