Georginio Wijnaldum back for Liverpool after knee injury
Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum says he is available for selection after recovering from a knee injury that ruled him out of Sunday's defeat at Tottenham Hotspur.
Wijnaldum picked up the knock during a training session on Saturday when James Milner accidentally struck his knee.
The midfielder was in considerable pain afterwards and subsequently left out of the matchday squad for Spurs, but has now confirmed he is fit for Saturday's meeting with Huddersfield Town at Anfield.
"The knee is good now," Wijnaldum told the club's official website on Thursday. "I was unlucky that in training before the game I had a kick on it, it was in a duel.
"Milner tried to shoot and I tried to block but I was a little bit late with my block, he'd already shot the ball and he swung his foot on the inside of my knee.
"At first it didn't look like it was that bad, but after training I had more pain than during training and the day after, on Sunday before the game, I had a lot of pain. I could barely walk, so it was not possible to play.
"I'm still in a little bit of pain but I can play with it. I had full training yesterday and felt good so probably I can play.
"The manager decides if he's going to put me in the first XI, but I will be available."
