Rotation has been the name of the game for Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp and the German manager will keep that trend going this weekend when West Bromwich Albion visit Anfield in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Pardew celebrated his first win as West Brom manager in the FA Cup third round against Exeter City and followed up with a 2-0 Premier League victory against Brighton and Hove Albion earlier this month.

The Reds have had mixed news on the injury front ahead of this fixture.

Di Marzio suggests that both the Reds and Spurs bid between £22 and £35 million (AU$38 - 61m) for the Argentine, with the player flat out rejecting a Premier League move.

Adam Lallana is out but could return in midweek, whilst Nathaniel Clyne is closing on a return to action in February. Sturridge would not be a guaranteed striker in Inter Milan's team, they already have one of the best strikers in the world in Mauro Icardi and they would not drop him for anybody in the world. 'So why should I stop now only because the the 31st is here? It is not that we now say exactly that we need that, or cannot play football any more'.

Jordan Henderson has returned to fitness, however, having not played since December due to a hamstring injury. His probability of scoring "that goal" against Manchester City was just 1%.

Potential West Brom Starting Lineup: Foster; Dawson, McAuley, Hegazy, Gibbs; Phillips, Krychowiak; Barry, Brunt, Rodriguez; Rondón.

The England worldwide has not played for Liverpool since December 7, when he came on as a late substitute against Spartak Moscow, and wants to leave Anfield before Wednesday. For West Brom to upset Liverpool at Anfield, Hegazi will need to have a great game.

"When Daniel is fit, training, in shape he is still an outstanding striker there is no doubt about that".

Lallana has been ruled out for Saturday's FA Cup match against West Brom because of a muscular injury.

"Mainly we have had good games in last few months, but that game was not too good, and the last game was not too good".

According to The Sun, Liverpool and Everton are battling for Salomon Rondon's signature before the January window concludes.
