Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said he had 'nothing to moan about' regarding injuries as he prepares to face West Brom.

The reds face Tony Pulis's side on Saturday evening at Anfield in the 9th Premier League game of the campaign.

With Adam Lallana making a substitute appearance against Man United, and Gini Wijnaldum returning to training this week Liverpool have no injuries to first team players.

Wijnaldum has been out for a week after his injury sustained on international duty but is expected to be considered for a start on Saturday.

Klopp said:

“We had a few kicks and things like this – in the game (against United) and still felt them after the game, of course. But nobody is ruled out at the moment and Gini is on the way back, so that’s good.

“If nothing happens today or tomorrow, we have quite a big squad to make the choice.”

Turning to Tony Pulis's side, Jurgen highlighted their fighting qualities.  In the game at Anfield last season Liverpool recovered to draw 2-2 and it will be remembered for Klopp taking the players towards the fans at the final whistle.

Klopp said:

"The differences between the Premier League and all the other leagues in world football is that (there are) big individual qualities in all of these teams.

"I think we all know the reason for it and that's the big difference.

"Nobody will go through and have at the end 120 points or something because there are a lot of difficult hurdles to jump over and West Brom is for sure one of them. They fight for every point.

"I respect them all and I showed it last year when we played West Brom. I celebrated the point and it was a little bit surprising for most of the people but I was happy.

Klopp was briefly asked about Mourinho's comments after the Monday night game in which the Man Utd boss said that Liverpool 'are not the last wonder of the world like the media make out'.

Jurgen seemed surprised by the question and hadn't heard it - he added:

'I have no idea. I'm not interested actually.'

Liverpool take on West Brom on Saturday at 5:30pm UK time.
