James Milner has declared himself fit for Liverpool’s trip to Wolves on Friday night after missing the Manchester United victory.
Milner was forced to sit out Sunday’s 3-1 win with a slight hamstring strain but he says he’s ready to return to the squad as the Reds look to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table.
The utility player confirmed on the club’s website this week he had “a bit of a sensation” in his hamstring and both he and boss Jurgen Klopp agreed it was “the right thing not to risk” him against United.
The former Leeds United, Aston Villa and Manchester City midfielder has again been influential for Liverpool so far this season, playing 15 times in the league with 11 of them being starts.
The 32-year-old may fill in again at right-back against Wolves as Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez are both out, although Nathaniel Clyne impressed in his first league start of the season on Sunday and could retain his place.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
