Jurgen Klopp handed injury boost as key Liverpool trio return for Crystal Palace

Liverpool take on Crystal Palace with the aim of extending their already comfortable lead in the Premier League table.

Jurgen Klopp’s side forged an eight-point lead by beating Manchester City 3-1 at Anfield before the international break, giving them a huge advantage.

The Reds have now received a further boost with injury news surrounding three players, shortly after it emerged Mohamed Salah and Andy Robertson are doubts for the clash.

Midfield duo Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum are available to Klopp, as well as England defender Joe Gomez.

Henderson didn’t feature against Montenegro or Kosovo over the break due to a viral infection, but he has now recovered.

Wijnaldum missed Netherland’s 1-1 draw with Northern Ireland but returned to score a hat-trick during the 5-0 win over Estonia.

Gomez missed England’s second fixture after he was booed by a small section of fans for his altercation with Raheem Sterling, but the Telegraph have now reported that Gomez could recover from a knock to his knee.

Although Klopp remains keen for his side to push on in the Premier League, former Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp thinks the title race is already over.

“Oh yeah for sure,” Redknapp told the Daily Mail when asked if Liverpool will win the title.

“I can’t see any other outcome than Liverpool winning it.

“I mean, absolutely for me, it’s an impossibility.

“I can’t even see Liverpool losing.”

He added: ”I think Man City will chase them for a while.

“Then I think they will realise that Liverpool aren’t slipping up and then I think they will put all their eggs in the Champions League basket.
