Liverpool are obviously still without three of their biggest players in Virgil van Dijk, Diogo Jota and Joe Gomez.
But they can take solace in the fact that summer signing Thiago Alcantara has returned to training, though he won’t feature against the Baggies.
Mo Salah will likely start after coming on to score twice in the 7-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Welcome to our live blog of Liverpool against West Brom in the Premier League.
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool have the chance to go five points clear at the top of the Premier League this afternoon, having spent a third consecutive Christmas Day at the top of the table.
The Reds have lost just once in the league so far this season and put on a ruthless display last time out, hitting seven past Crystal Palace eight days ago.
West Brom meanwhile have won just once so far this season, and face a tough test today at the home of the Champions.
The Baggies lost 3-0 at home last time out to West Midlands rivals Aston Villa, in what was Sam Allardyce’s first game in charge.
West Brom fans will take some hope into today’s game though, as Allardyce is the last away manager to win a league game at Anfield with Crystal Palace, all the way back in April 2017.
The Baggies also took a point from Manchester City in their last away game, and Slaven Bilic’s last game in charge, and will be hoping for a similarly defensively sound performance today.
Kick off is at 4.30pm and team news is coming up in half an hour.
